Getting into that Christmas sprit nice and early this year. I always make biscuits at this time of the year as gifts and for a few days I kept wanting to us my cookie press that I own. I had a little look at the disks that come with it and it had two perfect ones for Christmas Biscuits.
My cookie press was a gift but you can get them on Amazon and I do recommend them. I loved using mine and it makes biscuit shapes so easily and yes I know its called a cookie press but I think they are more like biscuits when they are cooked than cookies.
I used two disks in my cookie press, one was a Christmas Tree and the other one a Wreath and I was so happy with how they turned out. Both sets of biscuits looked amazing when they were on the tins.
There are lots of disks with the cookie press you could do lots of different designs if you wanted.
This recipe has been halved because depending on the size of the disk does mean you could end up with lots of biscuits. This recipe still makes at least 25 biscuits so you will still have enough to enjoy.
Now these biscuits taste amazing just as they are but I really wanted to decorate these biscuits because I see beautiful biscuits all over Instagram and I wanted to add my own versions.
