5. Step

Use a 2 Tbsp cookie scoop or a spoon to measure out the afghans and roll them into a ball. Place onto a lined baking tray and use the back of a spoon to press the afghans down. They will spread a small amount in the oven but this just gives them a head start. Make sure to leave space around each afghan so it has room to spread.

Pour in the boiling water and use a whisk to combine the ingredients together until smooth. You may need more water for a thinner consistency but add this very slowly so you don’t get stuck in the trap of more icing sugar, more water, more icing sugar.
