Easy Stars And Hearts Biscuits: Baking With Kids.
Easy Stars And Hearts Biscuits anyone?
Dr. Oetker has recently released some exciting new products including; Easy Choc Milk, Easy Choc White and Easy Ice.
Earlier this week they sent me some of their new products to try out and make some of their easy star and heart biscuits! Thank you 🙂
How yummy do Dr. Oetker’s biscuits look below? Now I wonder if we could make some that look as good as these?
They say “These biscuits not only look amazing they are super easy to make too!”
But are they? Read on to find out.
How To Make Easy Stars And Hearts Biscuits:
For the recipe Easy Stars and Hearts Biscuits:
For The Biscuits:
125 g Salted Butter (4 ½ oz, softened)
55 g Caster Sugar (2 oz)
180 g Plain Flour (6 ½ oz)
30 ml Milk (2 tbsp)
5 ml Dr. Oetker Madagascan Vanilla Extract (1 tsp)
about 10 g Dr. Oetker Chocolate Easy Ice (Enough to decorate)
about 10 g Dr. Oetker Pink Easy Ice (Enough to decorate)
about 10 g Dr. Oetker Yellow Easy Ice (Enough to decorate)
Dr. Oetker Milk Easy Choc (x1 pot or 150g)
1.) Preheat the oven to 190°C (170˚C fan assisted or gas mark 5).
2.) Place all of the biscuit ingredients into a mixer and mix to form a soft dough.
3.) Shape the dough into a ball and chill in the fridge for 10 minutes.
4.) Line two baking trays with baking paper.
5.) Roll the chilled dough on a lightly floured work surface to approx. ½ cm thick. Cut 8 rounds using a fluted cutter 8cm in diameter. Place the rounds on the lined baking tray, spaced slightly apart.
6.) Re-roll the remaining dough to ½ cm thick and cut 8 smaller shapes using cutters approx. 4-5 cm in diameter (hearts, stars, petals). Place on the second lined baking tray.
7.) Bake both trays in the preheated oven. The smaller shapes will take 8-10 minutes to bake, the larger rounds will take 12-14 minutes. The biscuits should be light in colour and just starting to turn golden around the edges when baked. Allow to cool on the baking trays for 10 minutes before allowing to cool completely on a wire rack.

To Decorate Your Cookies:
1.) Prepare the Easy Choc and Easy Ice as per pack instructions.
2.) Dip 4 round biscuits and 4 shaped biscuits in Easy Choc. Place a wire rack over a piece of baking paper. Place the covered biscuits on the wire rack to set.
3.) Squeeze the Easy Ice over the remaining biscuit rounds and shapes alternating between colours. Place on the wire rack to set.
4.) To assemble your biscuits, top the biscuit rounds with the smaller shapes to create a double layer. Use a small blob of easy ice to stick the two layers together.
As mentioned above, are they easy to make?
Yes, they are!!
So yummy too.
I ended up eating mine before the icing had set as they were so tempting on the side!!
Making my biscuit recipe up.
Cutting them out and after cooking.
Cooked and left to cool.
I used just Easy Ice pink and yellow on mine with some Dr. Oetker edible flowers.
