; (6oz)

-(4oz)
Grated rind of 1 orange or 1
-lemon
125 g Ready to roll fondant icing;
-(4oz)
Few drops food colouring
Oil for oiling baking trays

* Preheat the oven to 180 C, 350 F, Gas Mark 4.

Lightly oil 2 baking trays.

Sift the flour into a large bowl and stir in the sugar. Rub in the
butter using your fingertips then knead together, adding the orange
or lemon rind, to form a dough.

Turn out onto a floured surface and roll out to about 5mm ( 1/4 inch)
thick.

Using novelty cutters, such as teddy bears and animals, cut out
favourite shapes and place onto the baking trays, leaving a small
space between each one. * Bake immediately in the preheated oven for
8-10 minutes until golden brown. * Transfer to a wire rack to cool.

Roll out the icing and cut out shapes the same as the biscuits. Press
onto the biscuits.

Add a few drops of food colouring to some of the icing and use to make
eyes, bows etc to decorate the biscuits.
