Christmas Frosty Cranberry Biscuits Recipe

This recipe for Christmas Frosted Cranberry Biscuits was inspired by the Easter Biscuits I made a few years ago. For Christmas though I have included cranberries, I have still used the frosted sugar topping to give the look of a frosty morning. This is a perfect recipe for baking with children and also creating your own Christmas Tree decorations.

Instructions
  • Cream together to butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolk.
  • Sift the flour into the butter and sugar mixture.
  • Add the fruit
  • Add the milk, you should have a soft dough.
  • Onto a floured surface gently roll out the mixture, until 1/2 cm thick.
  • Cut out your biscuits using a star pastry cutter or other Christmas cookie cutter.
  • Place them onto a lined baking tray and bake for 10 minutes oven temp 200 degrees. If you want to hang them on your Christmas Tree with ribbon you should make a small hole in the star before they go into  the oven - I used a chop stick.
  • Remove them from the oven after 10 minutes and using a pastry brush carefully brush each biscuit with egg white and then sprinkle with caster sugar.
  • Place back in the oven for a final 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven when lightly golden and allow to cool for ten minutes before carefully transferring to a cooling rack.
