On the 23rd of December my lovely children made stainned glass window biscuits

Today we made stainned glass window biscuits.  You need
  • 350g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarb of soda
  • 2 tsp ground giner
  • 100g butter
  • 175g sofr brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • packet wrapped fruit-flavoured boiled sweets in different colours

    1. Preheat the oven to 180C/
    2. For the biscuits, mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda, and ginger together in a bowl.
    3. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar.
    4. In another bowl, beat together the egg and golden syrup, then pour this mixture into the flour mixture and mix to make a smooth dough, kneading lightly with your hands.
    5. Crush the sweets in their wrappers using a rolling pin.
    6. Roll the dough out on a floured work surface to about 0.5cm/¼in thick, then cut into shapes using a selection of Christmas-themed cookie cutters. Transfer the biscuits to baking sheets lined with baking paper.
    7. Cut out shapes in the centre of each biscuit, making sure you leave a good edge all around the biscuit. Completely fill the hole in each biscuit with crushed boiled sweets.
    8.  Bake the biscuits in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden-brown.

      Also here is a lovely blog with a give away for toys - wish I had seen this before I did my shopping:
