Traffic Light Biscuits



We are heading to our local bike safety center tomorrow for a play, so the perfect snack has to be these great Traffic light biscuits. They are easy and quick to make, and will store for about two weeks in an air tight container, (I doubt there will be any left over though).

What you'll need:
125g butter, room temperature
1/2 cup caster sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups plain flour
Green, Orange (or yellow) and Red boiled lollies (or lifesavers) 


What to do:

Place butter and sugar in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla. Beat until combined. 

Add flour to butter mixture. Using your hands, mix to form a smooth dough. Turn dough out and shape into a rectangle. Cover and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

Roll dough between two sheets of baking paper to form a rectangle. Cut smaller rectangles the size you want your 'traffic lights' to be, using a small cutter (or I used the bottom of a clean texta) to make circles for where the 'lights' will go. Lay biscuits on two oven trays lined with baking paper.

Cook, one tray at a time, in a moderate oven (180C) for about 10 minutes, or until lightly golden. Place one (I made small biscuits so I chopped up my lollies in quarters, to fit in the smaller holes) green, orange and red lolly in holes of each biscuit. Return to oven for about 3 minutes, or until lollies have melted. Let cool in tray as putting on a wire rack will make the lollies sink through the bottom hole.


Enjoy! xx
