Add sugar and combine the mixture before adding the egg and golden syrup.

The ingredients can be mixed until a dough is formed and this should then be rolled to a thickness of 5mm.

Use biscuit cutters of a paper pattern to cut into the desired shape, the chef explained.

Place the biscuits on a non-stick mat or parchment paper and bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until they maintain their shape when touched and are golden colour.

While the biscuits are cooling, the icing can be made.

To make the icing, add one egg to 600 grams of icing sugar and beat the mixture until smooth.

The icing can then be thinned by adding an extra egg white and used to decorate the cooled biscuits.

The simple recipe is sure to be enjoyed by the Royal Family and can be made easily at home.
