Stained-glass window biscuits
- 50g butter
- 50g golden caster sugar
- 140g plain flour
- 1 medium egg
- 1tsp vanilla essence
- 1 crushed, clear hard boiled sweet
Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. In a large mixing bowl combine the butter, caster sugar, plain flour, an egg and vanilla essence until you have a dough.
Roll out the dough to the thickness of a £1 coin and cut out various shapes (try stars, trees or circles). Place your shapes on a baking tray lined with baking parchment.
Cut out a small circular hole in the centre of each biscuit. Fill each hole with one crushed, clear hard boiled sweet. This will melt in the oven to create your 'stained glass'.
Bake your biscuits in the oven for 8 mins until light golden and firm. Allow to cool completely.
