I’ll confess, the only thing christmassy about these is the shape, but they were a big hit and I’m under orders to make them again pronto.
6oz plain flour
1 egg yolk
Rub the butter into the flour then add the sugar and egg yolk. Mix to a soft dough then wrap in cling film. Chill in the fridge for 20 mins.
Preheat the oven at gas mark 6 amd line two trays with baking parchment.
Take dough out of the fridge and on a floured surface, roll it out and then cut into shapes.
Bake for 10 – 12 mins swapping halfway through. Leave on trays to cool.
Make up a thick icing using the icing sugar and a little water & food colouring. Ice and decorate.
Leave to set then enjoy!
