Puzzle biscuits

PREP TIME 20 MINS (Plus 40 mins cooling)

250g unsalted butter, softened
150g caster sugar
2 egg yolks
2 tsp vanilla extract
315g plain flour, sifted
3 cups icing sugar mixture, sifted
2 eggwhites
1 tsp lemon juice
Food colouring, to tint

1 Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Line 3 oven trays with baking paper. Combine butter and caster sugar in a bowl of an electric mixer and beat on medium, using paddle attachment, for 5 minutes or until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs yolks and vanilla.

2 Fold in flour until a smooth dough forms. Flatten, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 40 minutes or until firm.

3 Roll out dough to 4mm thick, then cut into a variety of square-based shapes using cardboard templates. Arrange, 3cm apart, on prepared trays and bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden and crisp. Cool on a wire rack.

4 Put icing sugar, egg whites and lemon juice in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat on medium, using whisk attachment, for 5 minutes or until fluffy. Divide among bowls and tint in colours of your choice. Spread icing over biscuits. Allow icing to set. Serve.
