Star Biscuits

You can use these as individual biscuits, or pile them on top of each other to make a star tree (as shown in picture) or sandwich them together to make melting moments.

Happy Baking :-)

250g nuttelex, at room temperature
1/3 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 3/4/ cup flour
1/3 cup custard powder

Preheat oven to 180C.
Beat nuttelex, icing sugar & vanilla together with an electric mixer. Beat until light & creamy. Add flour & custard powder gradually & stir slowly with a mixing spoon until all combined.
Place dough on a piece of baking paper & knead til the dough holds its shape. Wrap in cling wrap & leave in the fridge for half an hour.
Return dough to baking paper & flatten. Place another piece of baking paper on top and roll out with a rolling pin til approx 5mm thick. Using a cookie cutter, cut out the dough & place on the baking tray lined with baking paper. (Depending on what you want to make you should use all the same size cutter or different sizes.)
Bake for 12-15 mins until a light brown colour. Cool completely on tray.

1/ Melt some Sweet William white chocolate over a double boiler. Pile stars on top of each other starting with the largest stars at the bottom. Place a small drop of chocolate between each star. (NB: do not put too much chocolate between the layers or else they will slide off.) Decorate the star tree with remaining white chocolate, Christmas coloured sprinkles, or icing sugar.

2/ Beat together 1 1/4 cups icing sugar, 60g soft nuttelex & rind of one lemon. Spread a little onto each biscuit & place two together. Dust with icing sugar.
