Vickys Remembrance Day Lemon Poppy Seed Cookies GF DF EF SF NF step by step
- Cream together the sugar and Stork / butter, then mix in the milk, lemon zest and vanilla.
- Mix in the flour, baking powder and xanthan gum if using until you form a dough. Gluten-free flour may need an extra tablespoon of milk added in.
- Sprinkle in the poppy seeds and knead through.
- Wrap in clingfilm and refrigerate for an hour.
- Preheat the oven to gas 5 / 190C / 375°F.
- Roll or pat out the dough to around 5mm thick and cut rounds out with a 3 inch cookie cutter. I get between 24 – 30 depending on the flour I use.
- Bake for 15 – 18 minutes until golden.
- Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
- Mix the icing sugar with just enough water to make a thick but spreadable glaze and pour some into a piping bag.
- Pipe a white background circle onto each cookie and let set.
- Remove 6 tablespoons of leftover white icing and colour 3 black and 3 green.
- Colour the rest red.
- The poppy emblem used by the British Legion is the shape of a number 8 with a wider bottom or a snowman if you can picture that better. Put the red icing in a piping bag and pipe that outline onto each cookie then go back and fill the shapes in.
- When the red has set use the black to pipe a dot in the middle of each poppy.
- Then use the green to make the stems or a leaf if you like.
- Let set for a good hour before serving.
- In memory of those who fought for their countries and laid down their lifes in the hope that the future could be lived in peace. Lest We Forget..
