Sugar cookies movie night style.
.
I had my girls round for tea on Saturday night, and we had originally planned to eat and watch a film……. we didn’t actually end up leaving the table (too busy sticking after eight mints to our foreheads and trying to get them in our mouths for films 🤣) BUT I love a ‘theme’ and made movie night favour boxes for them all anyway #dessert
.
I got some paper popcorn boxes and filled them with a cone of popcorn, a bag of @veganallsorts sweets and chocolate, a mini popcorn keyring I made with Shrinkie paper and a popcorn cookie!
.
Sugar cookies are so easy to make and can fit any theme you need. They’re a great activity to do with kids or just make them yourself like I did when the kids are in bed 🤣🤣
.
I got all my Ingredients, bar the food colouring @robinsonsiom

For the cookies-
🍿100g @iomcreamery butter, softened at room temperature
🍿100g caster sugar
🍿1 medium egg, lightly beaten
🍿1 tsp vanilla extract
🍿275g @laxeyflour plain flour
🍿cookie cutters
To decorate-
🍿200g icing sugar
🍿3-4 tsp water
🍿2-3 drops food colourings
.
🍿Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
🍿Cream the butter and sugar together in a bowl until combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract, a little at a time, until well combined. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract, a little at a time, until well combined, then stir in the flour and bring together to form a dough.
🍿Roll the dough out on a lightly floured work surface to a thickness of 1cm/½in. Using biscuit cutters, cut biscuits out of the dough and carefully place onto the baking tray.
🍿Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Set aside to harden for 2 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.
🍿For the icing, sift the icing sugar into a large mixing bowl and stir in enough water to create a smooth mixture. If using different colours, separate into different bowls and Stir in the food colouring.
🍿you can just spread on colour on each biscuit or I drew a design on the cooked biscuit with edible pen and then iced on using a piping bag. Edges first, then filled in. To make the popcorn I put big splodges of yellow icing to give it texture. (@bbcfood recipe)
