Have fun making and decorating Christmas tree biscuits to last you through Christmas or for decorating the tree!
This year, in a bid to maintain Christmas spirit despite the limited funds, we decided to make a variety of edible goodness for the family. It's a very simple gingerbread recipe, although cooking times do vary quite considerably depending on the shape you carve your biscuits into ...as I found out.
Great biscuits for a children's party. They can decorate them any way they like.
I make these vanilla biscuits every year, cutting the dough out in different shapes every time! They look lovely when you put some coloured icing on them. This recipe makes a lot of biscuits - great for gifts and for Santa!
This biscuits are lightly spiced and incredibly moreish. A gingerbread dough is enriched with cinnamon, ginger and black treacle, stamped into gingerbread men shapes and baked to perfection.
These simple, classic biscuits are welcome any time of year. For a festive touch at Christmas, use Christmas-themed biscuit cutters and decorate with icing.
These biscuits are delicious and can easily be made into festive cut outs for any occasion - great for Christmas, Easter, kid's birthdays and more!
A warmly spiced biscuit that will warm the cockles of your heart. These delicious treats are flavoured with black treacle, ground ginger, mixed spice and cinnamon. Enjoy with a hot mug of tea.
These gorgeous Christmas biscuits are pretty additions to decorate your tree but also delicious enough to eat. A vanilla biscuit is cut out with a hole in the centre and baked with a coloured sweet in the middle. The result is a gorgeous stained glass centre!
These adorable cut-out biscuits make a lovely Christmas treat, with simple, wholesome ingredients and a luscious cream cheese icing. Use an arsenal of dried currants and candied orange peel to make the snowmen's faces, and colour some of the icing with food colouring if desired to make snuggly hats.
I love making these Christmas tree biscuits to get into the Christmas spirit. They are loved by kids and adults alike. If you cannot find lime extract, simply omit it from the recipe, or add a tablespoon of grated lime zest.
