We saw these in a book that my Grandma bought us down on her last visit Christmas Cakes and Cookies by Imagine That. BBloved the idea of sweetie windows in biscuits, so I had a go.
You will need:
225g of plain flour
Half a teaspoon of ground mixed spice
100g caster sugar
1 tablespoon of milk
10 coloured boiled sweets.
1. Grease a baking tray ready
2. Sift the flour and the mix spice into a bowl.
3. Add the butter in cubes and rub together and like breadcrumbs.
4. Add the sugar and milk to bowl and knead into a dough
5. Wrap in cling film and put in the fridge for 15 minutes
6. Roll the dough out onto a floured surface and using christmas cutters, cut out your shapes. Place on the baking tray.
7. Put the boiled sweets into sandwich bag and snash them up.
8. Cut a hole or shape into the centre of each biscuit. Fill the holes with the crushed sweets.
9. Bake for 10-15 minutes. leave to cool. Once the middles of the sweets have set place onto a cooling rack.
Here they are: Stained glass window Christmas biscuits – if you wanted to add a hole at the top, you could make these into tree decorations as well. I must say that I did not grease the baking trays enough at all, and broke sone of the biscuits as the sweets stuck, that that would be my ‘I would do next time tip!’ We love them!
