Christmas is getting here so fast and I am far behind on everything. Buying gifts, planning out the holiday, booking my tickets home, etc. So many things to think about, so little time! However, there is one thing I am not behind on! Wanna know what it is?! I bet you already know! Christmas baking! You are in for a new recipe! Let’s make some delicious stained glass cookies!
Christmas Stained Glass Cookies Recipe
-1 tsp ground ginger
-1 orange zest
-50g golden sugar
-1 tbsp milk
-12 hard-boiled sweets
1. Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (or fan 160°C).
2. Mix the flour, ginger, zest and butter (cut in chunks, cold, not melted) with half a teaspoon tsp salt to fine crumbs. Add in the sugar and milk. Then, knead the dough on a floured surface until smooth.
3. Wrap in cling film and let chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
4. Flour your work surface. Then roll out the dough to the thickness of a £1 coin. Use cookie cutters (around 7cm) for outer cookie design. Use smaller cookie cutter (4cm) for the cut out the middle. Re-roll any left over dough.
5. Make a hole in the top of each biscuit, then carefully lift onto a baking sheet.
6 Put the sweets in the freezing bag and crush them all with the rolling pin. Put the crushed sweets into the middle of the biscuits. There should be enough sweets to that equals the level of the dough.
7. Put the baking sheets in the oven. Bake for 15-20 mins or until the biscuits are golden brown and the middles have melted.
8. Remove from the oven. Then leave to harden. Transfer to a rack to cool. Thread with ribbon.
The cookies are best eaten within three days but can last longer, especially if you want to hang them onto your Christmas tree. They make the perfect edible treat! You can hang the biscuits up in other places of your house!
