Ginger Stained Glass Window Biscuits:


This is a recipe I've made with my mum for as long as I can remember. Since Christmas is all about traditions I thought I'd show you. I took this recipe from the BBC website but we changed it a little as we went.

You Will Need:

-350g of plain flour
-1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
-1/2 tsp salt
-2 tsp ground ginger
- 100g butter
-1 free range egg
- 4 tbsp golden syrup
- fruit flavoured boiled sweets 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C
  2. For biscuits, mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda, salt and ginger.
  3. Rub in the butter to make the mixture look like breadcrumbs, add the sugar
  4. In a separate bowl, beat the egg with the golden syrup, then add to the flour mixture and knead til you make a dough.
  5. Crush the sweets with a rolling pin
  6. Roll the dough to around half a cm thickness, and cut out your Christmas shapes. Then put them on a lined baking tray.
  7. Cut out the shapes you want in the centre of each biscuit and fill in the hole you make with the crushed sweets.
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  9. Remove the biscuits from the oven and leave to cool so the melted sweets can set.
