Hello everyone! Today I want to start a new section of this blog that will be dedicated to baking, since – like books and movies – it’s one of my favourite things. To start on a good note, today I’m going to show you a recipe for spooky biscuits!
300g of flour
125g of sugar
100g of butter
16g of baking powder
A pinch of salt
Grated peel of a lemon
For the icing
500g of icing sugar
2 egg whites
100g of dark chocolate
First of all, melt the buttter and leave it to cool. Once it’s cool, mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, starting with a spatula.
When you won’t be able to use a spatula anymore, it’s time to start getting the dough together with your hands. Make a ball with the dough and wrap it in some transparent film and let it rest in the fridge for an hour.
After an hour, take out the dough, stretch it out with a rolling pin and cut out the shapes of your biscuits.
Put them in the oven at 160°C for about 10-12 minutes and let them to cool.
Once they’re cool, you can start to ice them. To do the icing, whisk together the egg whites and the icing sugar. Put the icing in a piping bag and pipe it on the biscuits. Melt the dark chocolate and use it to decorate.
Here they are! They taste very very good and they are super easy to make!
