These Gluten Free and Dairy Free Biscuits on straws are sure to turn heads at your next kids party

We have a little family love affair with the old school style glass milk bottles – perfect for an after school drink with a nice gluten free biscuit and always used at parties!

Nine times out of ten though we can’t find the little metal lids. Here is the perfect showstopper party solution (and a firm favourite after school too!)

Gluten Free Dairy Free Party Biscuits

For the biscuits, use our fail-safe gluten free and dairy free vanilla cookie recipe!

To make these super-awesome little gluten free straw-topper biscuits is so simple! Kids love to make them and they are a doddle to decorate too.

To Make

Choose your favourite shaped cookie cutter. The cutter needs to be roughly the same size as the top of the bottle although a slightly larger cutter works well too. These biscuits don’t puff up much, nor do they shrink massively either, so your biscuit will be the same size as the cutter you choose.

Roll out the dough to approximately 5mm thick and cut out your little shapes. Using the same style straw that you intend to use in the drinks late, poke a small hole in the centre of the biscuit. You will need to jiggle the straw about a bit to make the hole slightly wider than the straw just in case the mixture spreads at all. If it does, don’t panic. These biscuits are firm enough when baked and cooled, to withstand a little prodding and poking to get the straw through.

Bake on a baking sheet lined with parchment/greaseproof paper at 130 degrees centigrade for around 20-25 minutes until the biscuits begin to go slightly golden around the edges. Cool on a wire rack.

Ice as simple or intricately as you wish or let the kids go wild with a piping bag (you might be surprised how good the kids designs are!).

Let us know how you get on!
