Amethyst Crystals are used in spiritual healing to provide calmness, prevent nightmares and cleanse your spirit. The same can not be said for these cookies. Instead of calmness you’ll have excited kids, you may have slight nightmares from the sugar consumption and there will be very little cleanliness of spirit, kitchen, floor or life as you know it!
But you will have delicious biscuits and be able to enjoy some super fun messy play with the little ones.
You will need 2 baking sheets well greased or lined with baking paper.
- Portion of basic biscuit dough
- Packet of ready to roll icing
- 200g granulated sugar
- Purple food colour gel/paste
- 2x Tablespoons golden syrup
- Golden sprinkles and/or gold food colour
Make the biscuits as per the recipe in the link above, ideally using a round cutter to get circle cookies.
In a large bowl or food processor, mix the sugar with a few drops of food colouring until all the sugar has turned purple.
Add one tablespoon of syrup and mix until the purple sugar starts to clump together slightly.
Roll out the icing as thin as you can (about 1cm) and using the same circle cutter you used for the biscuits, cut rounds of icing.
Attach the icing to the biscuits using a small amount of golden syrup.
If you have gold food colour, paint a border of gold on your icing and then add the gold sprinkles as per the next step.
Using the golden syrup as a glue, attach the gold sprinkles to the outside of the biscuits.
Using a small paintbrush or toothpick apply some purple food colour to the centre of each cookie.
Paint around the colour with golden syrup and add the purple sugar on top, pressing down in the centre.
