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


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

  • These sound great. My kids love a good cookie in their lunch box, plus a freckle! Onto a winner


  • Yummy. I love freckles. Good excuse to buy some. Thanks


  • So sweet. These remind me of a store that used to sell different cookies and you choose your favourites and buy a big bag of freshly baked cookies. Freckled cookies were always in the bag.


  • They look so cute. Will be great for a morning or afternoon tea in the garden.


  • These are so pretty. Perfect for a morning tea with some friends.

  • These look great thanks for sharing this recipe


  • sorry but this recipe tastes like cardboard.. they look great in your picture. but the dough is extremely crumbly and dry, added more milk as you say. but still horrible. rolled out dough and it is so tough and so many cracks. baked about 10 as i knew it would be a disaster.
    biscuits taste like cardboard and so crumbly. sorry but have to let you know. thrown out!
