Continue mixing and add the flour, happy eggs, zest & juice, flour and spicesMat’s top tip: If it’s too dry, add a little warm water. Roll the mixture into 1 inch diameter balls. Place on a greased baking tray, with at least 1 inch space around them. Press the tops gently with a fork to flatten them slightly. Place in a preheated oven at 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4 for 12-14 minutes. The biscuits are ready when they have just started to brown around the edges. Leave to cool on a baking tray.Icing Mix the butter and icing sugar together in a bowl, adding the milk as needed to make a smooth pasteMat’s top tip: It’s much easier if you warm the butter first. To make the spider’s web pattern on your biscuits, first, spread uncoloured icing over the biscuit. Then, with a piping bag or an icing pen, draw concentric circles with the coloured icing. Quickly, while the icing is still wet, use a toothpick to drag a line from the centre of the circles to the outside edge, every 30° or so. Hey presto - a spider's web!
