• 1 quantity Basic biscuit dough ingredients (see related recipes)
  • Green icing
  • 1/2 cup pure icing sugar
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons water
  • Green food colouring
  • Orange icing
  • 2 cups pure icing sugar, sifted
  • 2 to 2 1/2 tablespoons water
  • Orange food colouring
  • Follow steps 1 to 3 of Basic biscuit recipe. Using a carrot-shaped biscuit cutter, cut out 25 biscuits from each circle of dough. Place onto trays. Refrigerate for 15 minutes or until firm. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Stand for 5 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • Make green icing: Sift sugar into a bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of water and food colouring. Stir until smooth, adding more water if necessary (consistency should be like thick cream). Repeat to make orange icing.
  • Place green and orange icing into separate snap-lock bags. Snip off 1 corner of each bag. Pipe green icing onto carrot tops. Drizzle orange icing over carrots. Set biscuits aside to set.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature. Leave out on Christmas Eve for reindeer with a glass of milk for Santa.
