More Christmas Biscuits!

I am on a roll with biscuits! I use them as little Xmas presents for friends...and I wanted to try my other cutters from Wilton...so cute!

I used the same pastry of the Xmas Tree Biscuits, and as you can see flour was needed from time to time as the dough got sticky!

I Baked them at 160°C for about 12 minutes, and then I dusted some biscuits with icing sugar, and I covered the others, wholly or partially, with fondant flowers (cut with the Wilton cutters)

When I could not roll any more pastry I started to shape some biscuits by hand. After making the Christmas Tree Biscuits I made these stars (below) which I decorated with white chocolate and yellow icing.

Yesterday, instead, the last bit of pastry became a big biscuit for my husband (iced like a miniature cake).

And the left over fondant was given to the children, who made these cute snow men!

Now, today I have to extract the winner of the book. But my kids are at an art workshop all day, so I will write the names on pieces of paper in the meantime, and then wait for the little ones to come home and pick one. Good luck to all!


  1. I'm hoping Santa is bring me some cookie cutters for Christmas :) One can never have too many I feel - heh heh!

  2. I agree with you Penny, I could collect cookie cutters easily, I hope Santa will be good with you :-)

    Just did the hat businness (well, actually instead of using a hat we use one of my daughter little bags). Arantxa put her hand in the bag and she was very excited by the whole experience, like she was going to win something...and she picked...Yari from http://cucchiaiodilegno.it/

    Thank you to all for entering, Next month I will organize another book and competition, if you like!


  4. Fantastic cookies. I love the shapes. Re you comment to Muso over at mine. I think he is a spammer. I edited the comment so it remains there but without the URL link it won't assist in his SEO.

    Have a wonderful Christmas Alessandra.

    A milano fa freddo freddo ed abbiamo 30 cm di neve...forse oggi si alzano un po' le temperature, ma danno ancora neve!
    Bacione cara!
