Sparkly Shortbread Stars

  • RECIPE MAKES: 18 biscuits
  • COOK TIME: 25-35 minutes
Step 1

Preheat oven to 160°C/fan 140°C/gas mark 3.

Step 2

Place Fate low protein all-purpose mix and sugar into a bowl.

Step 3

Rub in the block margarine with your fingertips, until it resembles fine breadcrumbs. Continue to mix until it forms a dough.

Step 4

Dust surface with Fate low protein all-purpose mix and knead the dough, until smooth.

Step 5

Roll dough to 0.5cm thick. Using a star shape cutter, cut 18 biscuits from the dough, place onto a baking tray lined with baking paper.

Step 6

Using a smaller star shape cutter, cut out the centre of each larger star biscuit and then place a whole boiled sweet in the centre. Place the smaller star shaped biscuits on another baking tray lined with baking paper.

Step 7

Bake larger biscuits with the boiled sweet centre for 10-15 minutes and 5-10 minutes for smaller star biscuits. Once cooked they should be lightly browned and the sweet melted.

Step 8

Leave them on the tray until they are cool and the centres are set. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Serving Suggestion:
To step your biscuits up a notch, dip or drizzle with melted Vitabite®.


Top Tip:
If the centre hole in the biscuits is less than 2.5cm diameter a whole sweet may be too much for the middle, so simply cut the sweets in half with a sharp knife. It may help if you do a test bake first.
