3. Place the dough in a plastic bag and chill in the fridge for half an hour.

4. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to 5mm thick and stamp out the cookies, using your chosen cutters. If you are using a template, cut around the template with a knife for each cookie.

5. Lightly knead and re-roll the trimmings together again to use up all the dough. Place the cookies on greased baking sheets.

6. Bake for 12-15 minutes until lightly coloured and firm but not crisp. Leave on the tray for two minutes before transferring to a wire rack to to cool.

Fondant –

1. Get your 8oz of fondant and knead in the 8 drops of Foodie Flavouring until well mixed through the fondant.

2. Roll out the fondant to about 3mm and cut out a shape using the cookie template or cutter you used earlier that matches your cookie template. Repeat this for all your cookies.

3. Then get your 6oz of fondant and knead in the 6 drops of Butterscotch Foodie Flavouring and add the pink food colouring. Then with a smaller template or cutter create another shape to layer up the cookie.

4. Attach the shapes to the cookie using warm jam.
