Preheat the oven to 180C (Fan 160)
Sift the flour into a large mixing bowl

Mix together with your hands until the mixture resembles a soft ball of dough
Roll out on a lightly floured surface until it is ½ cm (1/4”) thick
Cut dough into Star Shapes (or circles using a cup turned upside down)
Put shapes on a lightly greased tray
Bake in the oven for about 10-12 minutes until pale golden.
Put the cookies on a wire rack to cool. Mix the icing sugar and water until smooth, then add a drop of food colouring.
When biscuits are cool, spoon half a teaspoon of icing on each one and spread out evenly.

Ek verkies om Royal versiersuiker te gebruik:

“Royal icing”

Die icing  raak klip hard en jy kan dit in ‘n piping bag sit en patroontjies en randjies, ens daarmee doen. Skei ‘n eier en gebruik net die eierwit. Klits dit liggies met ‘n vurk tot effe skuimerig. Skep nou bietjie-bietjie VERSIERSUIKER by en roer dit elke keer eers goed in voor jy die volgende sarsie bygooi. Hou so aan tot jy die verlangde konsistensie het.Jy kan dit kleur met voedselkleursel.

OF

“Royal icing”

Eierwit van 2 groot eiers (60g)
10 ml suurlemoensap
330g versiersuiker

Klits die eierwitte en suurlemoensap tot styf. Voeg dan die versiersuiker by en klits tot blink en glad. Die versiersel is reg wanneer jy die “beaters” uit die versiersel haal en dit sy vorm behou. Die versiersel moet in ‘n lugdigte houer gebere word, want dit word hard as dit aan lug blootgestel word.Voeg kleursel by vir verskillende kleure.
