Saturday afternoon was spent making our 'stained glass' biscuits for the tree. It is one of the rare times Hubby joins in with baking and he likes to be in charge of the boiled sweeties. So the menfolk got on with the bashing in the pestle and mortar whilst I prepared the dough from the Christmas Tree Decorations recipe in Nigella's Feast. My Hubby is very methodical and precise ("ahem...slow", she coughs) and therefore colour coded the bowls as best he could.
The boys then got on with rolling and cutting out of the dough.
My eldest, Billabong the mad, is very good at this job. I guess he's methodical and precise ("slow"!!) like his daddy. Check this out......
He is good!!!
Youngest biscuit helped daddy place the bashed sweeties into the biscuits (no relation).
Made sure to place a hole for ribbon.
The smell from the oven was amazing!
They are pretty!
Yesterday we danced and decorated to Bing and the result fills us with tummy warmth that will last into the New Year! Ho ho ho!
