  • Serves

    125g butter, softened
    1/4 tsp vanilla essence
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp each: ground nutmeg, allspice
    1/2 cup Chelsea Caster Sugar
    1 egg, lightly beaten
    2 cups flour
    Decorate with Chelsea Icing Sugar, silver balls, glace cherries etc.


    Preheat oven to 180°C. In a food processor, mix the butter, vanilla, spices and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and mix to combine. Add the flour to make a firm dough. Chill for 15 minutes in the fridge.

    Roll dough out to about 5mm thickness and cut into shapes with Christmas biscuit cutters. With a thick skewer, make a hole in the top of each biscuit large enough for a ribbon to be threaded.

    Place on an oven tray and bake for 10-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
    Once cooled, decorate biscuits with coloured icing and silver balls.

I really like Chelsea Recipes

Great recipe! Hard not to eat all the dough! I will say mine was a little on the crumbly side, but overall still came out nice

Fantastic recipe! Tasty cookies and easy to make. Quantity will depend on your cookie cutter size. I made these cookies with no icing and they were still a hit.
