Spring Time Biscuits

Spring has come very softly this year, with some days cold and grey as we are so used to, and then I
go outside on the next in bright sunlight likes and the birds are singing! It's strange how I always forget in winter what it's going to be like in spring, how it feels to go outside without a coat on, like coming out of hibernation again. In fact, spring's fleeting presence made me so excited I decided to celebrate... with food of course. Sweet, pretty food to be sure: tiny little biscuits with pretty coloured icing!

The recipe for the dough and icing is here. On the blog post I've called them cookies, but spring has come to England and thus I have to call them biscuits. I always use this recipe as the biscuits always taste good and keep their shape well, and they keep pretty well too. My younger brother and sister helped and we had a lot of fun deciding what shapes to make for our little springtime scene.

The only changes I made to to the recipe were coloured the green icing using natural green food colouring and the pink with pink lustre dusk for extra shine! I first piped around the edges of the cookies and then flooded them with icing. The icing has to be quite thick for this to work well. I don't really know why I put it on a paper background, but I did.
