    1. Preheat the oven to 170 C / Gas 3.
    2. Using an electric mixer, beat butter until light. Stir in remaining ingredients.
    3. Knead until velvety. Roll 1/2 of the dough at a time to about 5mm thickness using the smallest amount of flour possible.
    4. Cut out into large circles. Using a smaller circular cutter, cut out a smaller circle in the centre of each to make rings. Transfer to baking tray.
    5. Bake for 12 minutes. Biscuits won't brown and will be very pale when cooked. Allow to cool before icing.
    6. To prepare the icing: In a large bowl, cream together the icing sugar and butter until smooth. Gradually mix in the milk and vanilla until smooth and stiff, about 5 minutes. Separate into five bowls. Colour with red, green, black, blue and yellow food colouring. Start with a small amount of colouring in each bowl, as you can always make the colour more intense by adding more.
    7. Ice the cooled biscuits with the icing, and place on a serving tray in the same arrangement as the Olympic rings. Enjoy!


    You could also use these biscuits to decorate the top of a cake!
