    25 Biscuits


For the shortbread

  • 225g plain flour, sifted
  • 115g rice flour, sifted
  • 115g caster sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon fine salt
  • 225g butter, softened and cut in small pieces

To decorate

  • 150g white eating chocolate, chopped and melted

You'll Need

  • Multix Bake
  • Multix Cling
  • Multix Piping bags
  • Assorted sized star biscuit cutters


  1. Preheat oven to 150oC.
  2. Line 2 baking trays with Multix Bake.
  3. Place all the shortbread ingredients, in a food processor and blitz until it forms a smooth dough, if you don’t have a food processor place the ingredients in a large bowl and rub them in by hand. Transfer the dough to a lightly floured work surface, knead lightly for 1 minute. Place on a sheet of Multix Bake, very lightly dust the top of the dough with flour and use a rolling pin to roll it out to about 2/3 of a cm thick. Using different sized star cutters, cut as many star shapes in assorted sizes as possible, transfer to the lined baking trays. Stack up all the offcuts, re-roll and repeat until all the dough is all used.
  4. Bake the stars for about 20-25 minutes until very light golden brown. Allow to cool fully on the baking trays before icing. Place the melted but slightly cooled white chocolate in a Multix piping bag. Cut a very small hole in the end and drizzle melted chocolate in a random decorative pattern over each tray of biscuits. Allow the chocolate to set and serve.
