Makes: about 20 biscuits
To make into Christmas tree decorations, use star or tree shaped cutters and press out about 20 shapes. Bake as above, then remove the biscuits from the oven and make a small hole at the top of each one with a skewer before they firm up. Leave to cool, add icing if using, then thread ribbon or coloured string through the holes and knot to make a loop.
To ice the biscuits, sift 200g of icing sugar into a bowl and stir in enough hot water (about 2 tablespoons) to make a smooth icing. Spread over the cooled biscuits. Sprinkle with crushed Waitrose Clear Fruits sweets to decorate and leave to set for 20 minutes.
