Ds and I enjoyed a little biscuit-making for christmas, over the last couple of evenings. (For the benefit of my American readers, in UK English, a biscuit is a hard, crunchy object - maybe what you might call a cookie, or perhaps a cracker?)
The recipe is very easy: sugar, butter, self-raising flour, cinnamon, ginger and grated orange rind, all mixed together to make a dough.
We used our assorted festive cookie-cutters to cut out various stars, christmas trees and bells, plus round cutters to make snowmen shapes. I thought they looked rather nice plain, but ds had other ideas.
The decorating is ds's favourite part. The snowmen biscuits, on the right below, are destined to be gifts for his teachers.
Term ends tomorrow, so we're bang on schedule.
