Rainbow covered cookies
These brightly colourful cookies are a hit for everyone, especially the kids.

175g softened butter

50g golden caster sugar

50g icing sugar

2 egg yolks

2 tsp vanilla extract

300g plain flour

Zest and juice 1 orange

140g icing sugar, sifted

Sprinkles, to decorate

Preheat the oven to 200°C / 400°F / Gas mark 6.

Prepare 2 baking trays with greaseproof paper and set aside.

In a bowl, mix the butter, sugars, egg yolks and vanilla with a wooden spoon until creamy, then add in the flour in 2 batches.

Stir in the orange zest.

Roll the dough into about 22 walnut-size balls and place on the baking trays.

Bake for 15 minutes until golden, then leave to cool.

Meanwhile, mix the icing sugar with enough orange juice to make a thick, runny icing.

Dip each biscuit half into the icing, then straight into the sprinkles.

Dry on a wire rack.
