Christmas Cookie Recipe

Is there anything like the smell of freshly baked cookies wafting through the house at Christmas time? I think not! 
I made these last year and they went down a treat with everyone. They are actually called Belgium Biscuits and aren't necessarily associated with Christmas... but whatever! I think they taste like Christmas in your mouth– it must be all the spices!

What you will need:

125g (4 ozs.) Butter
75g (3 ozs.) Brown Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 teaspoon Mixed Spice
1 teaspoon Ground Ginger
1 Egg
225g (8 ozs.) Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1. Cream butter, sugar and spices together
2. Add egg and beat

3. Mix in dry ingredients
4. Knead on a floured surface

5. Roll out thin (about 5 mms) and cut into shapes
6. Bake on a greased tray for about 15-20 minutes at 180ºC (350ºF)

7. Allow to cool
8. Decorate to look "christmasy"(I used white icing with white chocolate writing fudge and silver cachous for the snowflake) 

Makes about 23

Let me know what you think!
