|Finally got to use my pretty baubles|
This list made 16 and there's still half of the mixture in the freezer.
225g butter, soft
225g caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
zezt of a lemon
freshly grated cinnamon
450g strong white flour (or plain)
silver balls, edible glitter, water icing (quite thick), wool
- cream together the butter and sugar and add the egg, flavours and a pinch of salt and mix.
-Add the flour gradually and mix until smooth. You may need to do this in a kneading action rather than a stirring one.
-tip out on to the work surface and shape in to a ball and fridge for half an hour.
-preheat the oven to gas 4/ 180C and line a few baking sheets. Roll the dough to 1/2 cm thick and stamp out with some cutters. Make a hole in the tops with a chopstick, or whatever, and bake for 12 minutes. Leave to cool, decorate, string up and hang on the tree!
