These iced cookie fingers are a mix between cookies and iced buns. They’re so simple to make and are sweet and delicious too. They’re great for getting kids helping in the kitchen, as they can decorate their own cookies for tea – a great excuse to spend some quality time in the kitchen with your loved ones. You can make different shapes with the cookie dough too – try classic circles, triangles with a cookie cutter, you could even venture stars and hearts too. The possibilities are endless.

Ingredients

For the cookies:
  • 150g softened butter
  • 150g icing sugar
