Recipe: LUSH Inspired Butterbear Biscuits


Hello lovelies! I decided to use my somewhat 'special' baking skills to attempt to make some biscuits inspired by one of my favourite Lush bath bombs ever, Butterbear. I've been wanting to do this after coming up with the idea, and finally today I attempted to try it properly. The one above is my best of four, and even it doesn't look that much like the bath bomb but hey I tried! 

These biscuits are essentially just shortbread so if you have a good recipe for that, then you can also use it to make these. This recipe made four of these for me but it does depend on what size you do them!



If you want to try this recipe, you will need: 

PLAIN FLOUR (100g) 
BUTTER (100g)
GOLDEN CASTER SUGAR or an alternative type of sugar, I used granulated (50g) 
VANILLA ESSENCE (OPTIONAL)
FUDGE PIECES FOR THE NOSE OR SOME ALTERNATIVE

First off, you want to preheat the oven (150 degrees celsius/Gas 2 or 130 degrees celsius for a fan oven). After that you need to put the flour (100g) into a bowl and add the butter (100g). Then measure out the sugar (50g), and leave on the side to add later. 

Rub the flour and butter together with your hands until it looks like fine crumbs. Then stir in the sugar. 

At this point you want to gather all the mixture together into a ball and knead it, you can do this on a new work surface with flour, but I was lazy and just kneaded it inside the bowl.

Now's the hard part, crafting your Butterbear. The way I went about this was drawing the Butterbear shape on to a piece of baking paper, then moulding the dough onto it but you can do it any way you want to. After getting the basic shape, I added a oval of dough onto the bottom of his face to make a snout and then added fudge pieces to make a nose (you can really use anything). Then I did two slits for the eyes.


Put them onto and un-greased baking sheet and cook for 30-35 minutes. They should be reasonably pale when they come out so don't worry if they don't look cooked enough after that time. 

Thanks for reading lovelies! Hope you liked my attempt at baking! Let me know what you thought in the comment section below.
