Today Rachel fancied doing a bit of baking so we made these super simple and terribly tasty Christmas biscuits.
These are the simple ingredients:
250g butter , softened
140g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
300g plain flour
And all you do is:
Mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon.
Add the egg yolk and vanilla and briefly beat to combine.
Sift the flour and stir into the mixture.
Use your hands to make a ball of dough.
Roll out the dough about 1cm thick and use cutters to make shapes.
Bake the biscuits at 160 degrees C in a fan oven for 15 minutes.
When baked allow to cool and then decorate.
We made hearts, hearts with heart holes, bells, stars and candy canes.
The decorating was bright and cheerful. Perfect for Christmas; here are Rachel's favourites.
