|These silver studded stars came to work with me and went in a flash!|
1 3/4 cups plain flour,
1/4 cup caster sugar
1/4 cup rice flour
250g butter (room temperature)
1tbs instant coffee
2tsp hot water
5 tbs icing sugar and warm water to mix
Sift flour into a bowl and add sugar and rice flour. Add chopped butter
Dissolve the coffee in hot water and set to one side
Mix the dry ingredients and butter together - I used my hand but you could use a spatula
Add the coffee - if it is too wet add a little rice flour so it can be turned out on to the bench top
Add more flour so the dough does not stick
Roll out (not too thin) cut out stars
place on baking tray and cook in a low oven 120 deg for 45 mins
When they cooled I dribbled a little icing and added the silver studs
I kept a few plain ones for me!
They packed up very nicely in my lovely Christmas tin and toddled off to work.
A Merry Christmas treat for everyone in the office.
They loved them.
