About the bake

What better way to thank your bridal party than with some delicious biscuits. This  bridesmaid wedding biscuits recipe work great as thank you gifts, hen party nibbles or could even be used as ‘will you be my bridesmaid?’ invitation. Mix and match the flavours of the biscuits with different extracts to suit your taste - we think the floral flavour of rose water work perfectly for these. These biscuits can be made in advance and frozen (un-iced) for up to a month. Once iced, consume within a few days.

9 ingredients10 steps


    1. Step 1

      Mix together the butter and sugar, then add the egg yolks and rose water. Beat the ingredients until incorporated.

    2. Step 2

      Add the flour and using a wooden spoon bring the mixture together until it forms a dough (you may want to use your hands to make it easier).

    3. Step 3

      Wrap the dough in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.

    4. Step 4

      Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan 160°C, gas mark 4). Once chilled, roll out the dough to 1cm thickness and using a heart shaped cutter, cut out each biscuit.

    5. Step 5

      Place on a lined baking sheet then bake for 15 minutes until golden.

    6. Step 6

      Once baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.

    7. Step 7

      For the decoration, roll out the ivory sugar paste and cut into a heart shape.

    8. Step 8

      Brush the biscuit with warm apricot jam and cover with the sugar paste.

    9. Step 9

      Roll out the pink sugar paste icing and layer this on top of the ivory icing, using water to stick. You will need to trim some of the top to make the dress shape.

    10. Step 10

      Make up the royal icing and fill a piping bag. Snip a small hole and pipe the detail on the dress and necklace.
