Christmas Cheer : Baking and Decorating

Every month I collect the Asda magazine which has recipes in it, I cut them out and stick them in my Recipe book that one of my friends made me. This month, with Christmas around the corner I decided that I would make some of the ideas in the book.  The first recipe is Star Stained Glass Biscuits.

This simple but beautiful way of baking biscuits is one that I absolutely love! It’s fairly simple but makes them look so pretty and makes a great gift for Christmas, I love receiving baked goodies as a present! My favourite thing about these biscuits is the way the light shines through them and makes them come to life. The recipe was so simple to make, infact the hardest part was smashing the boiled sweets, now that was really hard work!

These biscuits make great tree decorations and they looked amazing on my Christmas tree. Try to place them where the fairy lights will shine through, but don’t leave them out for too long or they will go stale!
