Fondant Cookie Recipe - what you need:
For the cookies, you'll need...
100g unsalted butter, softened
100g caster sugar
1tsp vanilla extract
300g plain flour
And for the fondant topping, you'll need...
250g of coloured sugarpaste in your chosen colour
Beat the butter and sugar with an electric whisk for 4 mins until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then add the vanilla.
Whisk in the cornflour and plain flour until the mixture comes together into a dough.
Put the dough between two pieces of baking parchment, and roll out to a 6mm thickness using a rolling pin. Cut out your cookies and chill in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
While your cookies are chilling, heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas.
Bake for 7-10 mins. Leave to cool on the sheet for 15 mins, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
Add 1 tsp of Ingenious Edibles flavoured icing sugar per 250g of fondant. Knead the fondant until all of the icing sugar is incorporated.
Add some corn flour on your worktop and roll out the fondant to about 4mm thickness. Cut out your fondant.
With a food safe brush, add a little water to your cookie and add the fondant.
Add some more water on top of the fondant and add sprinkles.
