Edible and fun decorations to make with children. Stars or bells look great hanging on the tree and last 2-3 weeks – if you can resist them that long!

Ingredients
Ingredients
1 egg
50ml rapeseed oil
10-12 tsp granulated artificial sweetener
125g wholemeal flour
half tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground ginger
edible gold spray or paint
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C/gas 4.
  2. Beat the egg in a bowl. Add the oil and artificial sweetener, and mix well.
  3. Stir in the flour, baking powder and ginger, and mix again.
  4. Roll out the mixture to about 1cm thick and cut out your chosen shapes. If hanging on a tree, carefully make a hole for ribbon in one end with a skewer or chopstick. Roll out the leftover dough and cut out more shapes as you go.
  5. Place on a lightly oiled baking tray and cook for 8–10 minutes.
  6. Place on a rack to cool and decorate with the silver or gold paint. Thread the ribbons through and knot to make a loop. Hang on your tree.
Chefs tips
  • If you’re hanging the biscuits, after 3-4 minutes cooking time check the holes are still open and if necessary carefully press the skewer or chopstick through again while they are on the baking sheet.
  • You could add cinnamon or a pinch of cloves for a different flavour.
