Santa Belly Biscuits

Elevate your plain biscuits and shortbreads and create these super fun Santa Belly Biscuits! What’s even better – you can skip straight to the fun decorating part by simply purchasing a pack of your favourite plain biscuits from your local supermarket! Follow this simple guide to learn how easy it is!

Here's What You'll Need To Make 10:

Here’s a cheeky tip: Instead of purchasing all the biscuit ingredients, you can just buy a pack of your favourite ready-made biscuit mix from your local supermarket!

For the biscuits:

  • 175g Salted Butter
  • 250g Plain Flour (save some extra for dusting)
  • 100g Icing Sugar
  • 1 Large Egg Yolk

For Decorating:

Here's What You'll Do:

Bake your biscuits:
  1. Cut your butter into small cubes. Tip the butter, flour and a pinch of salt into a food processor. Blend the ingredients until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs and the butter is well mixed in. Add the icing sugar, egg yolk and 2 tsp cold water to the mixture, and blend again until the mixture starts to clump together (If the dough looks too dry add in 1tsp of water, but try to avoid adding any more, as this will make the biscuits tough).
  2. Bring the mixture out onto a work surface and squash everything together to make a ball of dough and the mixture is even thoroughly. Wrap in cling film, pat into a flat disk and let the dough chill for about 30 mins. While the dough is prepping, pre-heat your oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line a large baking tray with parchment paper. Dust your work surface with flour.
  3. Unwrap your dough and roll it out to about 3mm on top of the dusted surface. Now, either using a round shaped cookie cutter or cutting guide, stamp out 10 shapes then squash the scraps of dough back together, reroll and stamp out a few more.
  4. Arrange the biscuit shapes over the trays and bake for 18-20 mins, until just golden. Leave to cool on the tray for 10 mins, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
Time to Decorate:
  1. Once your biscuits have cooled it’s time to decorate! Take your Red Frosting and, using a spoon or a butter knife, spread the Red Frosting over each of the biscuits and smooth it out to create a smooth surface.
  2. Take your Writing Icing tubes and draw a white circle around the edge of the red frosting to create an edge using your White Writing Icing. Next, use your Black Writing Icing to draw in Santa’s belt and buttons. Finally, add in the yellow belt buckle in the middle of Santa’s belt using the Yellow Writing Icing, and add in some white detailing to the bottom of the biscuit to finish off your Santa Belly Biscuits!
