Ingredients – makes 10

How to make

  1. Preheat the oven 180 degrees Celsius/fan 160 degrees Celsius/350 degrees Fahrenheit/gas mark four, and lightly grease two to three baking trays.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, mix the butter and sugar until combined. Sift in the flour and mix on a low speed until a dough forms. Lightly flour your work surface. Turn the dough out and knead and shape into a flat disc. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
  3. Roll out to thickness of 5 millimetres (quarter of an inch) and cut out using a 9 centimetre (3.5 inches) wide round cutter. Place onto the prepared baking trays and bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until a pale golden colour. Remove from the oven then leave to cool on a wire rack.
  4. Once the biscuits are cool, gradually mix the water into the icing sugar and beat until smooth and you have
    a runny icing. Divide the icing between three bowls and add a small amount of assorted food colouring to each.
  5. Spread the base of a marshmallow with a little jam and fix to the middle of each biscuit. Turn the top half of the piping bag inside out. Place the piping bag in a tall glass or jug and pour in the icing. Make a small snip in the tip of the piping bag and pipe a steady outline around each biscuit. Snip the tip of the piping bag again to make a slightly larger hole, and pipe and fill in (flood) the centres of the biscuits, covering the marshmallows as well. Use a cocktail stick to carefully spread around the brim and fill in any gaps up to the piped outline, being careful not to let the icing overflow around the edges.
  6. Finally, make them look like beautiful bonnets with ribbon, bows and flowers.
