These colourful biscuits look great and kids will have lots of fun making them!
Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas 4.
Cream the butter, Tate & Lyle Caster Sugar and Lyle’s Golden Syrup together in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Gradually beat in the egg and vanilla essence until well mixed.
Sift together the flour and baking powder and stir into the mixture until it resembles breadcrumbs. Then gather the mixture together with your hands to form a dough.
Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth. Wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes until firm.
Roll out the chilled dough to 3mm (1/8 ”) thick and cut into rectangles measuring about 3cm x 8.5cm (1¼”x3½ “).
Using a very small plain round cutter or the end of a 5cm (½ “) plain round piping nozzle cut out 3 holes to represent the lights in half of the rectangles only.
Place the rectangles on 2 baking trays lined with parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until just golden. Carefully transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Spoon 3 small blobs of the different coloured jams along the centre of the plain biscuits to represent the traffic lights. Dust the biscuits with the holes with a little Tate & Lyle
Icing Sugar and then arrange on top of the jam-topped biscuits. Press down gently so that the jam shows through.
Kids will love getting involved with these brightly coloured biscuits so why not let them complete step 8 and do the decorating!
