READY IN: 30mins




  • Heat oven to 200c.
  • Line 2 baking trays with silicone paper.
  • In a saucepan mix together sugar and milk and bring to a boil.
  • Shake gently so sugar does not stick to the bottom.
  • Add baking soda & let it cool.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine flour & cinnamon.
  • Rub butter into the flour.
  • Once it is all rubbed in & there are no big lumps - add the milk mixture and mix well.
  • Put lots of flour on the surface you are going to roll the mixture on to prevent sticking.
  • Use about 1/4 of the mixture at a time - roll the dough thinly & use cookie cutter to cut out shapes.
  • Place on lined baking tray & bake until golden.
  • Allow to cool slightly on tray & use spatula to transfer to a baking rack to cool.
  • Once they are cool they can be iced and dipped in sprinkles.
  • To make icing - combine 1 tablespoon of the milk with the butter, food colour & icing sugar - then gradually add enough milk to get the correct consistency.
