VEGAN ST PATRICK'S DAY BISCUITS

Uniced vegan biscuits
Hello, all, and Happy Saint Patrick's Day. I decided to make biscuits for today's festivities and I veganised one of Rachel Allen's recipes from her lovely book Bake. It's easy peasy. This made 22 smallish biscuits.

Decorated vegan biscuits
Ingredients:
4oz vegan marg
2oz brown sugar
5oz plain flour
half tsp lemon essence (optional)

Method:
Preheat the oven to 170C
Cream the marg, lemon essence and sugar with a mixer or by hand
Sift in the flour and mix to a soft dough
Roll walnut sized pieces of dough in your palms
Place them apart from each other on an ungreased baking tray
Flatten them a little with a fork dipped in water
Bake for 15 to 17 minutes, or until golden
Remove from tray immediately and cool on a wire rack

Icing:
Mix 2 tsps of icing sugar with a little water.
Add more sugar and more water until the mixture is hard to mix
Palette onto the biscuits and decorate with green, white and orange jellies
Eat and have a happy Saint Patrick's Day!
