Here is an Alton Brown recipe
3 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon milk
Powdered sugar, for rolling out dough


Sift together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside. Place butter and sugar in large bowl of electric stand mixer and beat until light in color. Add egg and milk and beat to combine. Put mixer on low speed, gradually add flour, and beat until mixture pulls away from the side of the bowl. Divide the dough in half, wrap in waxed paper, and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Sprinkle surface where you will roll out dough with powdered sugar. Remove 1 wrapped pack of dough from refrigerator at a time, sprinkle rolling pin with powdered sugar, and roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick. Move the dough around and check underneath frequently to make sure it is not sticking. If dough has warmed during rolling, place cold cookie sheet on top for 10 minutes to chill. Cut into desired shape, place at least 1-inch apart on greased baking sheet, parchment, or silicone baking mat, and bake for 7 to 9 minutes or until cookies are just beginning to turn brown around the edges, rotating cookie sheet halfway through baking time. Let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes after removal from oven and then move to complete cooling on wire rack. Serve as is or ice as desired. Store in airtight container for up to 1 week.

Decorate them with liquid Royal icing around the edges and then flood the centre. Wait for them to dry before adding any other decorations etc.

Easy solution is to buy short crust pastry, roll out, cut out shapes, bake and ice.

Belgium Biscuits
Makes 10-12 double layer biscuits

125 g (1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons) butter, softened
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon cocoa
3/4 to 1 cup icing sugar
1/4 tsp raspberry or vanilla essence
a few drops of red food colouring
1/2 cup raspberry jam, approximately
Pink sugar
2 tablespoons white sugar
a little pink food colouring
Preheat oven to 180c/350FCream butter and sugar in the bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add egg and beat well. Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, mixed spice, and cocoa on top of the bowl and then mix into combine and make a firm dough.
On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to 3 mm thick. Cut out rounds using a 6.5cm cutter. It does sort of fall apart as this is a very short biscuit but keep going, you will get there (just make sure that the surface is lightly floured all over so that you can pick these up with a lightly floured palette knife easily. Re-roll scraps – it may seem more mottled and harder to roll together but don’t worry you can use this half of the dough for the bottom halves.
3. Bake at 180 C (350F) for 15 minutes or until cooked. When cold, ice the more attractive looking half of the biscuits. Spread the less attractive biscuits with raspberry jam and place iced biscuits on top. Sprinkle with pink sugar before icing fully sets.
4. Mix icing sugar with flavouring and colouring. Add sufficient water to make a pink icing of spreading consistency.
Pink Sugar
To make pink sugar, place sugar in a ziplock bag and add a tiny amount of food colouring. Seal the bag tightly and shake the sugar and massage it with your fingers so that the colouring is evenly spread
