Christmas Biscuits

100g Plain Flour
2tsp of Christmas spice (or make your own mix using ginger, Cinnamon, nutmeg)
1/2tsp Baking Powder
50g Soft Brown Sugar
1tbsp Milk
75g Butter
2tbsp Candied peel (optional)

To Decorate
Icing, Sprinkles, Edible glitter of your choice

Turn your oven to 180oC. Put all of your ingredients in a bowl and mix together using your hands. Once combined into a dough sprinkle your worktop with flour and roll out until about 1/2 a cm thick. (You may need to sprinkle your dough with flour lots to prevent it sticking) Put in the oven for 15-18 mins until golden. Let them cool on a rack.

Once cooled you can decorate however you want simply using a sprinkle of icing sugar, completely covering them in icing, or in my case lots of edible shimmer spray. It is completely up to you, have fun with them.

I used a Delicia cutter set which I found on Amazon
