Ingredients
  • 50g butter
  • 50g golden caster sugar
  • 140g plain flour
  • 1 medium egg
  • 1tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 crushed, clear hard boiled sweet
Method
  • 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.
