Shortbread Cookie Royal Iced Donuts By Day by Day

Ingredients: Shortbread Cookies

  1. 300g plain flour
  2. 100g caster sugar
  3. pinch of salt
  4. 250g cold butter
  5. half a teaspoon of vanilla

Importent utensils: Cookies

  1. 3 inch cookie cutter and 1 inch cookie cutter
  2. food processor
  3. Baking Paper lined tray

Method: Cookies

First Step preheat your oven to 150 degrees celsius 

  1. Sift your flour and chop your butter into cubes and put in the fridge
  2. Put flour,caster sugar and salt into the food processor and gently combine with a wooden spoon
  3. Add in butter and vanilla and process just when the little bread crumbs start to form 
  4. Pour into a large bowl and without handling it too much bring all the dough together into a ball
  5. Flour down your work space and knead for no more then 30 seconds or else your dough will have more gluten and not be short
  6. Flour down a rolling pin and roll dough so it is just under a centimetre 
  7. Cut out as many 3 inch circles as you can in the dough and then put them on a baking paper lined tray
  8. pick up your scraps and repeat but trying not to handle your dough to much
  9. when you have all your big circles get your 1 inch cutter and cut a small hole in the middle of the cookies to create a doughnut shape
  10. Now you CAN put these in the fridge so they won’t spread in the oven and if yours are quiet big you might want to do this but if you don’t mind about spreading go on ahead and put your cookies in the oven at 150 degrees celsius cook for 20-25 min

Helpful tip: You  will smell your cookies in the oven and it might be different times for different ovens so stick around when it is between 20-30 min because they should be done between that time.

Ingredients: Royal Icing

  1. 200g sifted icing sugar
  2. 1 egg white
  3. 1-3 teaspoons of water (for consistency)
  4. Pink food colouring


Importent Utensils: Icing

  1. Electric mixer
  2. Piping bag (no nosil is required)



Do while cookies are cooling

  1. Sift your icing sugar so it is silky smooth
  2. add your egg white
  3. Mix in the mixer until it can ooze off a spoon
  4. If it is too watery put in some more sugar or if it is to dry put in some water
  5. When it is nice and smooth add the smallest amount of food colouring so it is a nice light pink
  6. Transfer into a piping bag and don’t cut open the bag until cookies are ready to be decorated


Ingredients: Decorating

  1. Royal icing
  2. Sprinkles


Cookies must be cold until you start decorating also make sure you cut the whole in your piping bag at the tip and make sure it is nice and small

  1. Pipe your icing in a squiggly line going round the cookie and coming from the middle hole
  2. Try to go over the edge a little bit to create a dripping effect 
  3. Make sure to add sprinkles straight after you piped because the icing dries quick
