What you’ll need:


  • 150g butter
    (room temperature)

  • one tbsp of cocoa powder


Always ask an adult to help when using the oven

Your biscuits don’t have to be skewbald, you can also make them bay or cremello by not mixing the two batches together!


  1. Beat the butter and caster sugar together until light and fluffy.

  2. Crack the egg into the butter and sugar mixture and add the vanilla extract, then beat until well combined.

  3. Divide the mixture between two bowls and add the cocoa powder and 100g of the flour to one of the mixtures. To the other mixture, add the remaining flour. Make sure you give both bowls a good mix to combine everything.

  4. Once mixed, put cling film over both bowls and leave them to chill in the fridge for an hour. 

  5. On a piece of greaseproof paper, combine the two mixtures and roll into a ball.

  6. Chill the ball in the fridge for an hour so it’s firm. Once chilled, preheat your oven to 190 or 170 fan and line your baking tray with greaseproof paper.

  7. Roll out the biscuit mixture and use the cookie cutter to create your horsey shapes.

  8. Pop them in the oven for 10–12 minutes until they are lightly golden, then pop them on a cooling rack. Now it’s the really fun part – time to eat them!

Use black icing to add a mane and tail to really bring your horsey biscuits to life!
