Preparation

  2. Add 1 egg and mix until smooth. Set aside.
  3. Sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and spices into a large bowl.
  4. Add the butter mixture made earlier and incorporate until a stiff dough is formed.
  5. Roll out between two pieces of clingfilm until about 3 mm (⅛ inch) thick. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
  7. Cut out the shapes you would like with a cookie cutter and place on a baking tray lined with paper.
  8. Use a small cocktail stick to create a small hole in each biscuit for the ribbon.
  9. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown. Cool on the tray for two minutes, opening up the hole again if closed while baking.
  10. Transfer to a wire rack and let cool completely.
  11. Decorate with chocolate or icing sugar, and use string/ribbon to hang off your tree.
  12. Enjoy!
