Lego Biscuits!

Chester has been asking for ages if we can make Lego biscuits. As you all know, Chester's new(ish) obsession is Lego, so it was only fair that I helped him make these biscuits, right? Wrong, he actually wanted Daddy to make them with him!

That was actually fine with me, as much as I love to bake, Craig works a lot. So see's Chester less than I do. So whenever the children ask to do activities with Daddy I always make sure we can squeeze them in! 

I gave Craig a few tips (and my old Be-Ro book) and then left them too it! It turns out Chester only really wanted to sort the M&Ms and ice the biscuits, so Millie helped with the biscuit making! 

                              

They used.....

175g butter
75g caster sugar
250g plain flour

They mixed it all together into a dough. Rolled out to 1cm thickness and used duplo blocks as a cutting guide. They then baked the biscuits for 20 minutes at 180 degrees. 

Once fully cooled, I came in to help! I couldn't help it! I mixed 200g of icing sugar with a small amount of water until I got a thick paste consistency. I then split the icing into 3 bowls and added small ammounts of food colouring gel to each bowl (one blue, one green and one red). Then we simply spread the icing onto the biscuits and lastly, added the M&Ms. 

What do you think.....
