                                                                                             Reindeer Poo

Fun for the kiddies. These are simply made with left over marzipan.

Roll into small balls, then dip into melted chocolate.

 Keep in an airtight tin or jar.

                                                                                            Snowballs

One for your son, if like mine, he loves Marzipan 🙂

Made the same as the Reindeer Poo, but rolled in coconut just before the chocolate sets.

Again will keep in an airtight tin or jar.

Oh, did you know the Human body can’t digest coconut? So it shouldn’t be given to young children 😉

                                                                                         Christmas Tree Biscuits

Makes 30-40

Keep well in an airtight tin

Ingredients

250g plain flour

125g icing sugar

125g cornflour

250g butter

Topping

175g icing sugar

sugar sprinkles

Method

Preheat oven to 200C, gas mark 6.

Put the flour, icing sugar and cornflour into a large bowl and rub in the butter with your fingertips until it forms a dough.

Put on a floured surface and roll out until about 4-5mm thick.

 Use a tree cutter, or star, if you have one.

Put on baking trays and bake for 10-12 minutes.

Take out just before they turn brown.

Cool on a wire rack.

To make the icing, sift the icing sugar into a bowl, add 1 Tbsp water and stir until thick and glossy (you may need to add more water, just a few drops at a time).

Spread the icing onto the biscuits, then add sugar sprinkles.

Or put the icing into a piping bag and pipe onto the biscuits
