  • Divide the cookie dough into three. Roll each mound of dough into a 1 inch thick rectangle and wrap in cling film.
  • Place the three serves of cookie dough into the freezer for at least 30 mins. (I usually save one or two of the dough packages for another baking day)
  • Roll the dough into 6mm thickness and cut stars out.
  • Careful push a stick or paddle pop into the star and place on a prepared cookie slide.
  • Bake cookies for 12mins or until golden.
  • Repeat with remaining cookie dough.


  • Mix the icing as directed on the packet.
  • Pipe the outline of the star with the royal icing, repeat until all the stars have been outlined.
  • Add water to the icing to give a flooding consistency.

If only I wasn’t too big to be a fairy. If you could have a wish in your own magical cookie fairy wand what would it be?
