Catherine Wheel Cookies

Bonfire Night is just around the corner and the children are off school – what to do?

Why not bake?!

This is a recipe I have tried and tested with my grand-daughter (as I did with my gramma years ago) and I think it is delightful.

You will need:

12 oz plain flour
6 oz caster sugar
7 oz softened butter
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract
Two food colourings (I used yellow and blue but you can use any two contrasting colours)
Hundreds and thousands (or silver sugar balls/sugar strands)

You will need to pop the butter and sugar into a bowl and beat together until it is a light creamy colour. Add the vanilla extract, plain flour and egg and mix thoroughly until it comes together into a dough - Split it into two, mix the colouring in to either portion and wrap and cool till the dough stiffens a little.

Once cooled, remove from the fridge and roll out each different colour into a square and place one on top of the other and roll out to the thickness of a pound coin then roll into a swiss roll and again, chill.

Slice into 1cm thick pieces and place on a baking tray. Press into the surface of each ‘wheel’ the hundreds and thousands (or similar) and bake for 15 minutes and then cool.

Simply delicious.
