Iced Owl Biscuits

Week 2 of the Great British bake off was all about biscuits. Viennese whirls and gingerbread biscuits houses looked a tad too complicated for me so I opted for the iced biscuits for my Great Blogger Bake Off entry.

Ooh I  do love a good biscuit don’t you. I haven’t made iced biscuits in a very long time and I (stupidly) asked my daughter what sort of iced biscuits she would like. Owls she said most definitely. Yikes!

Still they weren’t as hard as I thought they would be to make and they tasted rather delicious I have to admit. Here is how I made them.
