What could be more Christmassy than a festive jumper? These Biscuits make the perfect gift. They are so cute and you can decorate them any way you want so they make a creative biscuit for children to decorate.
We used a simple cinnamon shortbread dough.
- 6oz of plain flour
- 4 oz of butter
- 2oz of caster sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
Cream the butter and sugar. Sieve in the flour and cinnamon, mix and roll into a ball.
Roll out and cut using a T-shirt cookie cutter or a jumper shaped template.
Bake in a 180 degree oven for about 10-12 minutes, until golden.
I set out a decorating table once the biscuits were cooled. On it I included:
- red fondant icing
- icing pens
- fondant shapes
- dried cranberries
- silver balls
The girls loved decorated their Christmas jumper biscuits. It was really easy to make them look good. I made a few with red fondant icing, a fondant snowflake and decorations with piped white icing and silver balls. They were really easy to make and looked really effective. You could make a lot of these to sell at the Christmas fair.
The girls’ designs looked good. They are aged 5 and 8 and produced really cute jumpers without needing any help. You could personalise with a name to make something really unique. What a lovely gift for a member of your family.
