Stained Glass Window Biscuits
Christmas is coming! As a kid I remember making these stain glass window biscuits with my Mum so really wanted to make them again for work!
Any boiled sweet would do the job but on this occasion I used some sherbet filled sweets meaning they had a slightly sour surprise!
- 8-10 fruity boiled sweets
- 120g unsalted butter, softened
- 60g caster sugar
- 180g plain flour
- 1tbsp milk
- baking trays
- circular biscuit cutters
- small gingerbread man biscuit cutter
- Preheat your oven to Gas Mark 4, 180C, 160C fan.
- Split the boiled sweets into their different colours. Place each colour into separate plastic food bags and use a rolling pin to break the sweets into shards ready to go into the biscuits later.
- Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl, until well combined. Sift the flour into the mixture followed by the milk. Use your hands to mix everything together until you're left with a ball of dough.
- Sprinkle some flour over a work space and then roll out the ball of dough until it's about 5mm thick. Use the two different biscuit cutters, cut out the biscuits and place onto a lined baking tray.
- Sprinkle shards of the crushed boiled sweets into the gingerbread man hole before popping in the preheated oven for 15-18 minutes. Remove from the oven and allow to cool COMPLETELY as the melted boiled sweet will be VERY hot.
- Make a cuppa, kick your legs up and enjoy this little moment of joy!
