Snow Flake Biscuits

So as the mother of two boys I have to say the whole "Frozen" phenomenon was in danger of passing me by! Without ever seeing this wonderful movie I had thought it was a very girlie fairy themed disney movie just like countless others I have seen.  How wrong I was!  Fortunately and to my great surprise my two boys both requested we watch it and with a heavy heart I mentioned to a close friend of mine (also a mother of boys) and she told how wrong my opinion of the movie was! 

So we sat down and watched it ... And loved it!  "Do you want to build a snowman?" invariably results in a full rendition of the song at an enthusiastic volume with huge grins!  So yes ok, I finally get it, I will stock some Frozen party supplies and hope I haven't already missed the boat.

Any way I have digressed somewhat! Back to the biscuits...



  • 250g butter, softened
  • 140g caster sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 300g plain flour


Mix 250g softened butter and 140g caster sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon.

Add 1 egg yolk and 2 tsp vanilla extract and briefly beat to combine. 

Sift over 300g plain flour and stir until the mixture is well combined – 

Notes - You might need to get your hands in at the end to give everything a really good mix and press the dough together.

(Recipe from Good Food magazine)

As a coeliac I needed to use gluten free flour, this is probably the reason that the biscuit dough was far too sticky to roll out, I needed to add a lot of extra flour to the biscuit dough.  The recipe doesn't say how long to cook them, I baked mined for about 25mins on a medium heat.

I have purchased some snowflake cookie cutters and a set of 3 snowflake plunger cutters, I got them from Amazon at a reasonable price, I have also purchased some white ready to roll fondant icing and some ice blue edible lustre dust, which came from my local cake decorating store.

The cutter I chose to use was the middle sized one and I did assume that I would need the middle sized plunger cutter for the fondant icing as they were roughly the same size but as it turned out I needed the larger size plunger cutter.  This receipe made approx 24 good sized biscuits although it would have made a lot more if had rolled out the dough a bit thinner.

Cutting out the fondant icing was a lot more pleasurable and surprisingly easier than expected, as long you remember to dust your surface with plenty of icing sugar to prevent the fondant sticking to your surface.  The plunger cutters are easy to use (although I did keep forgetting to press the plunger to emboss the snowflake with its design) and the blue lustre dust finished the biscuits off just right.

Now to put on the movie and enjoy our lovely Frozen snowflake biscuits with some milk, while we watch Olaf, Anna, Kristof, Elsa and Hans on their Frozen adventure.
