What makes you a Top Baker?

Alice: “Because I bake well and people love my cookies.”

Toby: “Because I have baked a lot and I make so tasty cookies.”

What did you guys think about the Rainbow & Bear cookies?

Alice: “I liked the ‘hard’ mixture very much.”

Toby: “Very tasty mixture and I liked them because they had sugar strands on.”

Recipe (makes 22-40; it depends on the size)


  • 175 gr softened unsalted butter
  • 50 gr caster sugar
  • 50 gr icing sugar
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 300 gr plain flour

To decorate/topping

  • zest and juice 1 orange
  • 140 gr icing sugar , sifted
  • sugar strands

Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6.

Mix the butter, sugars, egg yolks and vanilla with a wooden spoon until creamy, then mix in the flour in 2 batches.

Stir in the orange zest.

Roll the dough into small balls and sit on baking sheets.

Bake for 15 mins until golden, then leave to cool.

Meanwhile, mix the icing sugar with enough orange juice to make a thick, runny icing.

Dip each biscuit half into the icing, then straight into the sprinkles.

Dry on a wire rack.

Raw dough or un-iced baked biscuits can be frozen.


Happy Rainbow Bear Baking!  😀

  1. This sounds a lot like a recipe I make called Mexican Wedding Cookies. The only thing I think that is different is the orange zest and of course the cute decorations!! I’m going to try adding orange zest to my cookies next time! Also, I’m glad you had help!!! So cute!!!

    • Oh cool! Thank you!! This was the first time we baked these cookies. I was forced to tell them to NOT eat all the mixture… hahaha. Toby (the little baker) said: “You have told me that I should help you with eating it!!!” Thanks for the info. I will check those cookies up on google.
