We are going nutty for these cute squirrel biscuits. It is really simple to bake these and decorate to resemble our favourite woodland critters, so why not get the whole family involved in the fun.

Method

  1. Sieve the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl and set aside.

    • 200g Allinson Plain White Flour
    • ½ tsp Baking powder
    • ½ tsp Salt
  2. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar until pale. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.

    • 90g Butter (unsalted) (softened)
    • 100g Billington's Unrefined Golden Caster Sugar
    • 1 Egg(s) (free range)
    • ½ tsp Nielsen Massey Vanilla Extract
  3. Add the flour to the butter mix and blend until the dough is formed. Wrap the biscuit dough in cling film and chill for at least one hour.

  4. Preheat the oven to 170°C (150°C fan, gas mark 3) Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to about 0.5cm.

  5. Cut out the biscuits using a squirrel cookie cutter and transfer on to a baking sheet. Roll up the trimmings and repeat stage above to make more biscuits. Bake for 8-12 minutes until golden.
