Christmas Biscuits!

Today in the nursery we made biscuits for Christmas.  We had great fun mixing, rolling and using Christmas tree and star cutters to cut out the biscuits.  They smelled really yummy when they were cooking!  We are going to decorate them later in the week and take them home as Christmas presents.

Here is the recipe for our cinnamon biscuits which are really easy to make:

Cream together 125g butter or margarine and 125g caster sugar.  Beat in 1 egg. Mix in 250g plain flour and 2 tsp ground cinnamon until well combined.  Roll out as thin as you can on a floured board and cut into shapes.  Add more flour as necessary to stop it sticking.  Bake at 180C for approx 10 minutes until firm and golden. Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container when cold.  You can decorate the biscuits with royal icing and silver balls or leave them plain.
