Supercute Smiley Faces

Let’s face it, we’re all in need of a little something to smile about just now.  While not solving the world’s problems, these biscuits should certainly bring some brightness to your day.  These are made with a simple empire biscuit recipe, but with added sprinkles for joy.  I used a smiley face cookie cutter set from Lakeland – but if you don’t have one you can just use a round cutter and make the eyes and mouth yourself with a sharp knife.

Baking meets Star Wars – Empire Biscuits

I need to start with a confession.  I’ve never watched Star Wars, and don’t plan to any time soon.  But I am a baking obsessive and haven’t managed to escape the hype surrounding the latest movie.  So when my boyfriend and I saw these Star Wars themed sprinkles in Tesco, the idea of ‘Empire’ biscuits was too good an opportunity to miss.
