    Decorating ideas

    You can decorate with icing once the biscuits are fully cool. You may also sprinkle the biscuits with coloured decorating sugar before baking; green sugar works particularly well for Christmas tree biscuits. Press currants into the biscuits before baking for Christmas 'ornaments'.
