Stained glass star biscuits
- 300g plain flour
- 1 level tsp ground ginger
- 1 level tsp ground cinnamon
- 175g butter, cut into cubes
- 100g golden syrup
- 24 Fox’s Glacier Fruits
Pre-heat the oven to 180C/160C Fan/Gas 4. Line 3 baking trays with baking paper.
Sift the flour, ginger and cinnamon into a bowl.
Rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips until it looks like breadcrumbs.
Add the golden syrup and mix with a knife until big lumps form. Use your hands to make a dough. Wrap in cling film and chill for 30 minutes.
Lightly flour a work surface, then roll out the dough to the thickness of a £1 coin. Cut out large stars and circles with cutters. Cut a smaller hole in the middle of each biscuit.
Put the biscuits on a baking tray. If you want to hang them as decorations, use a skewer to make a small hole in each.
Sort boiled sweets into separate colours and put in freezer bags. Bash with a rolling pin, then fill the biscuit holes with the broken pieces.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the sweets have melted. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
