Funny faces

This is a great recipe to make with your kids these school holidays. You can use anything you like to decorate them, just raid your pantry and let your creative juices flow.

Kids love making them, adults love eating them  

These are some that I made - 

These are some my son made (LOL!) - 


  • ¾ cup melted butter
  • ¾ cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 2 ½ cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 Tbspn icing sugar - for decorating
  • lollies, teeth & sprinkles to decorate 

1. In a large bowl, mix melted butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla and whisk until combined.

2. Stir in flour & baking powder until a soft dough forms. Wrap dough in plastic wrap and freeze for 30 mins or until firm. 


3. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line 2 trays with baking paper.

4. Roll out dough on floured surface aprox ½ cm thick. Cut out circles using the rim of a glass. Place on baking trays. Repeat with remaining dough. 

5. Bake for 6 - 8 mins or until golden. Remove from oven & allow to cool completely.

6. Mix icing sugar with a few drops of water to make a thick paste. Use this to stick the lollies & sprinkles onto the biscuits to make your funny faces.
