Method

1. Cream together sunflower spread with caster sugar.

2. Crack in the egg and beat well, add in the vanilla extract.

3. Mix in the plain flour until you get a solid, handlable batter. Wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.

4. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4, roll out the dough on a well floured surface until about 3-4mm thick (this will make a nice crunchy biscuit) and cut into rounds (we used a 3" cutter) and place on a greased baking tray, they don't spread much so you can place them fairly close together.

5. Place in the oven for 13-17 minutes until the edges start to go golden brown, remove from the oven and allow to go cold before decorating.

6. Use scraps of icing to decorate however you like, colour the icing with food colouring if you wish, stick the icing on to the biscuits using a little icing sugar mixed with water.
