- 200g of plain flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- A pinch of salt
- 1 tablespoon of mixed spice
- 100g of muscavado sugar
- 150g of butter
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 1 pack of foxes fruits or jolly ranchers, sweets crushed
Start by preheating the oven to 180 degree Celsius. Again, your baking tray should be lined with the parchment paper. Take a bowl. Add the butter and sugar along with the eggs and start mixing it all well. Then start adding the flour, some baking powder, salt, the mixed spices and vanilla extract. Mix all this until a biscuit like dough is formed.
Place that dough on a clean surface and start rolling it. Its thickness should be about 1cm. With the help of shapes, start cutting the dough in various shapes and sizes. Then with the help of a smaller cutter or knife, make a hole in the center of the cookie. And then place it on the baking tray.
Pour the crushed sweets in the center of the hole. Let it bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes. Or at least you see them golden brown. Now this is an important task. The moment the cookies will come out of the oven , with the help of a straw, poke a hole in then center of the cookie. This will help you in running through a ribbon to hang on the tree. If you want the cookies to directly enter in your tummy, then do not make any holes in the center.
