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
  1. Preheat your oven to Gas Mark 4, 180C, 160C fan. 
  2. 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. 
  3. 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. 
  4. 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. 
  5. 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.  
  6. Make a cuppa, kick your legs up and enjoy this little moment of joy!
