Coffee & Cookie Time

We have just received the new cookie cutters from RICE.  They are brilliant!  They come in a pack of 3 different shapes, flamingo, lips and hearts.  As soon as we opened the box Issy and I abandoned everything and got baking.  We have a very simple short bread recipe and as soon as the biscuits had cooled with set to work with the decorating.  I am still finding hundreds and thousands everywhere!

The cutters look a bit strange but the idea is present your delicious cookies on the edge of your gorgeous melamine beaker or one of the new RICE melamine cups.  Issy made a ridiculously sweet hot chocolate and dunked happily away on her very pink, very glittery flamingo cookie masterpiece.


I have a free set of cookie cutters to give away in return for a recipe and a photo.  Please email me to win.

So Simple Short Bread Recipe

  • 125g butter
  • 55g caster sugar
  • 180g plain flower

Heat your oven to about 190 degrees or gas mark 5, we have an aga so it is a bit of a guessing game.

Beat the butter and the sugar together until the mixture is smooth.

Stir in the flour to get a smooth paste, turn the mixture out onto the work top or a board and gently roll it out until the mixture is about 1cm thick.

Use your fabulous new RICE cookie cutters to cut out your desired shapes and pop them onto a baking tray.  If you have time you can pop them in the fridge to chill for about 15 mins.

Bake in the oven for about 15-20 mins until the biscuits are a pale golden brown colour.

Pop the cookies on a wire tray to cool, then let your creative juices flow and get decorating!

Hang your cookie over your new RICE melamine cup and enjoy!
