Wild Flower Biscuit Recipe
Makes: 15 wild flower biscuits
Prep Time: 20 min Cook Time: 15 min
A small selection of edible wild flowers
100g unsalted butter (at room temp)
100g of caster sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
200g plain flour plus a little more for dusting
A sprinkle of granulated sugar for decoration
1. Heat your oven to 200C / 180C fan / gas 6 and line a baking tray with some parchment paper.
2. Put the butter into a bowl and beat with a wooden spoon, until light in texture and colour, and fluffy. (You could use an electric beater if you have one).
3. Beat in the sugar.
4. In a separate bowl or cup, stir the vanilla extract into your egg with a fork.
5. Pour around 3/4 of the egg and vanilla mixture into your butter and sugar mixture (you'll need to save a little for an egg brush just before your biscuits go in the oven).
6. Finally, add the flour to make your dough.
7. Dust your surface with flour, and roll out your dough. You'll want it to be the thickness of two pound coins.
8. Now use your biscuit cutter to mark out (don't cut through the dough yet), your biscuits.
9. Lay your wild flowers over the biscuits. When they're all in position, roll again, very lightly, to press them in slightly.
10. To fix your flowers and ensure they don't burn, use your leftover egg mixture to brush over all the flowers and tops of the biscuits.
11. Now cut out your biscuits and transfer to your baking sheet.
12. Bake your biscuits for 8-10 minutes. Keep an eye on them, to make sure the edges don't brown.
Storage: They will keep for around 4 days in an airtight tin.
