Vanilla Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

  • RECIPE MAKES: 16 Large cookies
  • PREP TIME: 20min
  • COOK TIME: 20min
Step 1

Pre-heat oven to 160°C.   Line a large, flat biscuit tray with baking paper.   

Step 2

In a medium sized bowl, using electric beaters, cream together butter and sugar. 

Step 3

Using a spatula, gently fold FATE mix into butter and sugar, 2 3min., until mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs.  Make a well in the centre.  

Step 4

In a small bowl, combine water, egg replacer, and essence; pour into FATE mix centre. Using the spatula, fold all ingredients together until a firm dough is formed.  

Step 5

Sprinkle extra FATE mix on clean workbench.  Using a rolling pin, flatten dough until ½- ¾ cm thick. Cut out shapes, using your choice of cookie cutter/s.    

Step 6

Place cookies on prepared tray, bake 20min., until just light browned on top.  Transfer to a wire rack to cool.   Meanwhile, prepare icing.  

Step 1

Using electric beaters, mix together icing sugar, water, and essence until well combined (you may need to add a a little extra water).    However, the mixture should firm, not runny.   

Step 2

Add glucose syrup and mix, using electric beaters, further 1min., until icing is smooth.

Using a knife, spread icing over cooled biscuits.    Decorate with sprinkles if using.
