Christmas Biscuits with the Kiddie Winks

We were completely snowed in today so I decided to become a stepford wife for the day, a bit of cleaning and washing, Sunday dinner and even baked some christmas biscuits with the children. This recipe is so simple that even I couldn't mess it up, I admit openly I'm not the best baker in the world. Well in France with a patisserie on every corner why bother even trying!


For the biscuits

115g butter
50g caster sugar
170g plain flour
1 egg, beaten

For the icing

50g white chocolate
1 tblsp water
115g icing sugar
green food colouring
coloured sprinkles


1. Preheat the oven to 150°C
2. In a large mixing bowl whisk the butter until soft
3. Add the sugar a little at a time, mix together until light and fluffy
4. Add the egg and fold in the flour a little at a time
5. Roll out the dough to roughly 2 cm thick
6. Cut out your chosen shapes
7. Cook in the oven for 25 - 30 mins
8. Once baked, leave to cool

Now you can make the icing

1. In a saucepan place the chocolate and water
2. Stir until the chocolate is melted
3. Bring to the boil and let boil for 2 mins
4. Sift the icing sugar and add to the chocolate
5. Mix together over a low heat until the icing sugar has dissolved
6. Add the food colouring, mix throughly
7. Cover the biscuits whilst the icing is still warm
8. Sprinkle over the sprinkles
