Who doesn't love an iced finger? The combination of a slightly savoury dough with a sweet glazed topping? It's the best of both worlds! 

But they don't have to be boring - why not make them stand out from the crowd a little and add a fun twist?


  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C. In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients together: bread flour, yeast, salt and sugar. 

  2. Slice the butter thinly and add to the flour mixture. 

  3. Add the water and egg to the mixture and mix into a dough. The butter should still be visible. 

  4. Wrap in clingfilm and leave to rest at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. 

  5. Once rested, on a floured surface roll the dough into a long rectangle with the longest side facing you. 

  6. Cut the dough into strips - I cut them in to 2 inch strips but you can make them as thin or as thick as you like. In each strip, make a cut down the middle lengthways, leaving 1-2cms attached at each end. 

  7. Twist the two strands around each other. Leave to rest on a lined baking tray for at least an hour or until they have doubled in size. 

  8. Using a pastry brush, gently brush them with a bit of oil and bake in the oven at 190°C for 10 minutes or until golden brown. 

  9. While the dough is baking, make the glaze by mixing the icing sugar and water together in a bowl until smooth. Add more water if it's too thick. 

  10. When you remove the fingers from the oven, gently brush the glaze all over using a pastry brush. Let them cool completely before eating and enjoying!

    Super easy to make, especially with the kids. I used regular White caster sugar worked out fab.
