Stain Glass Decoration Cookies

Makes 12

Ingredients

  • 1 clementine
  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 180g plain flour
  • 50g caster sugar
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • 12 coloured boiled sweets

Step 1

Preheat the oven to 180°C and line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

Step 2

Add the butter, flour, sugar, clementine zest and cinnamon to a Mason Cash Mixing Bowl, then using your fingers, rub the butter into the mix until it resembles fine breadcrumbs.

Step 3

Add the milk and combine to create soft dough. Wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step 4

Separate the sweets into colours and place in separate sandwich bags. Carefully crush into small pieces with a rolling pin.

Step 5

Place dough on a lightly floured work surface, and roll out 1cm thick. Use your Mason Cash Set of 3 Mini Fondant Star Cutters to cut out the large star and place on the baking tray. Then use the smaller star to cut a ‘window’ in the centre of each biscuit.

Step 6

Sprinkle enough crushed sweets to fill the centre, and then use a cocktail stick to make a hole in the top of each biscuit, so you can tread a ribbon through them later.

Step 7

Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden. Leave to firm up, then thread with ribbon and hang them on the Christmas tree.
