Christmas Biscuits

Making and decorating Christmas biscuits is my favourite pre-Christmas activity. The BBC Food recipe I use makes vanilla biscuits but to make them taste more Christmassy I add mixed spice.

Cream the butter and sugar together, add the egg and vanilla essence (and mixed spice) until combined. Then add in the flour to form the dough. 

Then you can raid the cupboard for Christmas cutters you probably last used when you were five years old.

Then once they have cooled on a wire rack its time to start decorating!

...And tah-dah, with a touch of glitter and some icing, you've got Christmas biscuits!
