Another year, another round of Great British Bake Off to hit our screens – can you believe this will be the 13th year of the much-loved baking show?! To celebrate, and in collaboration with the wonderful kitchenware brand Mason Cash, here’s a gorgeous biscuit recipe to get you in the mood for some home baking.


  • 120g gluten-free flour
  • 100g sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 75ml oil of choice
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 

For the decoration – 

  • 6 tablespoons icing sugar
  • Few drops of red food colouring
  • Pinch of turmeric 

Make them!

  1. Mix together the flour, sweetener and baking powder in a bowl.
  2. Whisk in the oil, egg and vanilla and mix well to form a dough. Wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 1 hour.
  3. Using extra flour to dust, roll out the dough and use round cookie cutters to cut out a variety of shapes. Then use flower stampers in the middle of each.
  4. Place each cookie on a lined baking tin a little bit apart. Bake at 180C for 12-15 minutes until golden and firmed up. Leave to cool then pop onto a wire rack.
  5. Nix mix 4 tablespoons of icing sugar with a dash of water to form a slightly runny texture. Place in a piping bag then carefully go over the petals of each.
  6. Next mix one tablespoon of icing sugar with a dash of red food colouring, then use a cocktail stick to draw a small amount over each petal coming from the centre.
  7. Finally mix together the turmeric with the 1 tablespoon of icing sugar left and pipe into the middle of each. Allow to set then enjoy!
