Use our basic biscuit recipe to create these Flower Cookies which are a bright and cheerful treat and are bound to make your child smile when they open up their lunchbox!

Ingredients (makes 15 cookies)

  • 455g Plain flour
  • 1 level tsp Baking powder
  • 4oz Butter
  • 4oz sugar
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • pinch Salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • 15 Freckle lollies


  1. Pre heat oven to 170 degrees fan forced
  2. Sift the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt together.
  3. In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar then add vanilla and most of the egg – gradually.
  4. Add the flour mixture and mix to a stiff consistency.
  5. Add the remainder of the egg (some milk may be needed if the mix is too dry) and mix to combine.
  6. Turn onto a floured board and knead lightly. Roll out and cut flower shapes ( I used a cutter but you can do it free hand or just make circle shaped flowers- they taste just as good!) Place a freckle into the center of each one, and press to gently stick
  7. Transfer flowers to a baking tray lined with baking paper, and bake for 10 – 12 minutes or until lightly golden
  8. Allow to cool completely on a wire rack

Notes... These biscuits will store in an airtight container for up to two weeks - but I bet you they do not last that long!
