Homemade Party Rings

Party ring biscuits are a quintessential part of a kids (or big kids) birthday party here in the UK so I just had to create my own recipe! 

They are SO easy to make and perfect for adding your own personal touch by using whatever colours you fancy! 

  • 220g plain flour
  • 25g cornflour
  • 130g unsalted butter, cold and cut into small cubes 
  • 100g caster sugar 
  • 1 medium egg 
  • 1tsp vanilla extract 
  • 300g icing sugar 
  • Food colourings of your choice 

  • baking trays 
  1. Place the plain flour and cornflour into a bowl, followed by the cubed butter. Using your fingers, rub the flours and butter together until they resemble fine breadcrumbs. 
  2. Now add the sugar and egg and using a butter knife, mix until everything is will incorporated and a dough begins to form. Using your hands, form a dough, wrap with clingfilm and place in the fridge for 25-30 minutes. 
  3. Preheat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/Gas Mark 4. Line 2-3 baking trays with baking paper. 
  4. Lightly dust your work surface with flour and then roll out the dough until it reaches the thickness of a £1 coin. Now using a 5cm circle cutter, cut out as many circles from the dough as you can before bringing any leftover dough together into a ball and repeating the same process. Place these onto a baking tray ready for the oven.
  5. Taking a smaller cutter (or you can use a piping nozzle base like I did), cut out the middle of each circle. This can be squidged together to make up more biscuits!
  6.  Place the biscuits into the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. They may look very pale but this is okay! 
  7. Whilst these are baking, make up the icing. Split the 300g of icing sugar into four 75g bowls worth before adding a tablespoon of water to each and mixing this with a fork until a smooth consistency is achieved. Taking your choice of food colouring, add a few drops to each bowl of white icing and then mix again until you have 4 bowls of different colouring icing! 
  8. Once the biscuits are baked and cooled, dip one side of them into your chosen colour before using a teaspoon to drizzle some of a different coloured icing in a zig zag pattern on top of this. Using a cocktail stick, create a feathering pattern in the icing before leaving it to completely set overnight. 
  9. Make a cuppa, kick your legs up and enjoy this little moment of joy!
