Ingredients (Makes about 20 biscuits)
Butter or margarine 110 grammes (4oz)
Caster sugar 50 grammes (2oz)
Plain flour, sifted 175 grammes (6oz)
Extra caster sugar for dusting
1. Preheat the oven to 150°C /300°F (Gas mark 2). Lightly grease two baking sheets.
2. Begin by first beating the butter (or margarine) with a wooden spoon to a soft consistency, and then beat in the sugar, followed by the sifted flour.
3. Still using the wooden spoon, start to bring the mixture together, then finish off with your hands to form a paste.
4. Transfer the mixture to a board lightly dusted with caster sugar, and then quickly and lightly roll it out to about 1/8 inch (3mm) thick (dusting the rolling pin with sugar if necessary).
5. Cut the biscuits out using the dinosaur cutters, and then arrange them on the baking sheet, and bake on a highish shelf in the oven for 30 minutes. Cool the biscuits on a wire rack, dust them with some caster sugar, and store in an airtight tin to keep them crisp.
6. Once cooled the biscuits can be iced and decorated to make a fun dinosaur themed snack or an ideal party food.
