And for some inspiration in case you’re the winner, check out these baking recipes or give my lego biscuits a try… My icing skills are practically non-existant, so if you’re a more skilled decorator, these can have the potential to look truly lego-like! If only you could build things with them like real lego… The knobs (for want of a better word!) are created using small pieces of the biscuit dough, rolled up into a sausage shape and cut into small discs but you could also try using mini marshmallows, mmm…Print
Sweet, fun lego biscuits!

For the biscuitsI used this recipe for a basic biscuit dough.
For the icingYou can use prepared designer icing in the colours of your choice, or use this recipe for royal icing, plus food colourings.
- Preheat the oven to 180c and follow the instructions for the basic biscuit dough recipe.
- With the chilled dough, roll out between the cling film sheets to about 1 1/2cm thick. Using a rectangle cookie cutter, or a knife and a cardboard template like I used, create the rectangle shape biscuits and leave leftover dough for the knobs.
- Bake the biscuits in the oven for 10 minutes until pale golden brown.
- Whilst the biscuits are baking, make the knob shapes my rolling the leftover dough into a thin sausage shape, about 1cm thick. Cut slices of the dough about 1/2 cm long until you have at least 72 of them (a little time consuming, I know…)
- When the biscuits are ready, leave them to cool whilst you bake the knob shapes for 5 minutes. Keep an eye on them because they will brown quickly.
- Next, follow this royal icing recipe. If you’re using 3 colours like me, use 3 separate bowls and divide the icing sugar equally between them. Add a few drops of the food colourings until the desired colours are made.
- Smooth the icing over the biscuits, using either a knife or icing bag. Then apply the baked knob shapes to the biscuits (8 for each biscuit) then apply more icing over the knobs until they are completely covered.
- Let the icing harden before eating!
