Fantasy and creativity can be more than fun if you just play like a child. I am like a child when it comes to decoration and because of Easter I only had red color from beetroot. The result became light red to pink color. It is easy to make and bake.
Let the biscuits rest before you decorate it. Prepare the icing, if you don´t have powdered sugar, you can blend sugar, I use ´sågger`from nutty vegan, because it only contains Erythritol it is called a sugar alcohol and polyol, for example. found in melon, pears and grapes. The content of the fruits is just not big enough to extract it from there. Sawdust (erythritol) is instead grown via glucose from, for example, corn starch. It is fermented (like cheese, yogurt and wine) with a bacterial culture and then purified and crystallized.
INSTRUCTIONS Preheat your oven to 180C /350F and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.
Grate and juice the lemon, set both the zest and lemon juice aside for later.
Measure the butter and sugar, add it into a large mixing bowl. Mix it well with the lemon zest
Measure the flour and backing soda then add it to the bowl with the butter/sugar/lemon
Bring it together with your hands so you have a nice ball of dough.
Roll the dough thinly on backing paper spread with some flour.
Cut out your figures as eggs, stars, hearts etc.
Bake your biscuits in the oven for 12-15 minutes. They’re ready when they’re turning golden brown.
Remove them from the oven and leave them to cool on a wire rack. Decorate the lemon biscuits
Add a few spoons of icing sugar until you have a semi-runny icing combined with aqua-faba and 1-2 tsp. lemon juice. Whisk it well until it’s stiff enough. Divide it into smaller bowls and add the colors. I used beetroot juice, for light rose and pink.
Decorate the biscuits as you prefer with a thin stick or a teaspoon.
