Is there anything more summery than ice cream and ice lollies? Ok, maybe there are some things, but I can’t think of any right now. If, however, ice lollies are not quite right for the occasion (for practicality reasons most likely), then you will need to find a suitable substitute. And I have just the thing! Little “ice lolly” biscuits. Decorated with colourful icing and with a sweet taste of vanilla, these are perfect for a birthday party, BBQ or a picnic. All you’ll need to go with them is a nice cup of tea – or ice tea to make up for the lack of ice cream.

 

  • 1

    Put the butter and sugar into a large bowl and mix with an electric mixer until creamy.

  • 2

    Beat in the egg and vanilla extract until all is well combined.

  • 3

    Add the flour and mix at a low speed until a dough forms.

  • 4

    Roll into a ball, cover in cling film and chill in the fridge for 1 hour. Preheat your oven to 160C.

  • 5

    Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 3mm thickness. Use a cookie cutter to make ice lolly shapes. Cover a baking tray in parchment paper.

  • 6

    Transfer the biscuits onto the tray. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes. Take the biscuits out of the oven and leave to cool on a wire rack.

  • 7

    To make the icing, first put the egg whites into a bowl. Add the icing sugar and whisk (slowly at first) for about 5 minutes until you have a smooth paste.

  • 8

    Divide the icing into different bowls and add the colouring leaving one for the “chocolate” colour.

  • 9

    Now put the icing into piping bags.

  • 10

    Decorate your biscuits with the first layer.

  • 11

    Turn your oven onto 50C. Put the biscuits onto a baking tray and dry in the oven for 10-15 minutes.

    Once hardened, decorate with the “chocolate” layer and sprinkles. Leave to dry again.
