Ingredients

  • 250g butter, chopped, at room temperature
  • 80g (1/2 cup) icing sugar mixture, sifted, plus extra, to dust
  • 2 teaspoons Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur
  • 225g (1 1/2 cups) plain flour
  • 70g (1/2 cup) cornflour
    Buttercream
  • 80g butter, chopped, at room temperature
  • 120g (2/3 cup) icing sugar mixture, sifted
  • 2 teaspoons Baileys Irish Cream Liqueur

Method

  1. Preheat oven to 180C/160C fan forced. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper. Use electric beaters to beat the butter, sugar and Baileys in a large bowl until pale and creamy. Stir in the combined flour and cornflour.
  2. Use lightly floured hands to roll 2 teaspoonfuls of the mixture into a ball and place on the prepared trays. Repeat until you have rolled all the mixture, placing dough balls 3cm apart on the prepared trays. Dip a fork in flour and use to flatten cookies slightly, leaving the marks from the fork.
  3. Place in the oven and bake for 14-16 minutes or until the biscuits are pale golden. Set aside for 5 minutes to cool slightly before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  4. Meanwhile to make the buttercream, use electric beaters to beat the butter, sugar and Baileys in a large bowl until pale and creamy.
  5. Transfer the buttercream to a piping bag with a 2cm star-shaped nozzle. Pipe the buttercream over the flat side of half the biscuits. Top with remaining biscuits. Dust with extra icing sugar to serve.
