Ingredients
 

  • 125 g butter or margarine
  • 100 g dark brown soft sugar
  • 4 tbsp Carnation Condensed Milk
  • 325 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 20 boiled sugar sweets
  • coloured icing tubes for decoration
  • you will also need biscuit cutters and lined baking sheets

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180C, 350F, Gas Mark 4.
  • Heat the butter and sugar in a saucepan, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Add the condensed milk and stir together.
  • Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger into a bowl and pour over the condensed milk mixture. Start by working the ingredients together with a spoon, then bring the mixture into a soft dough with clean hands.
  • Roll the dough out on a floured surface until about 5mm (0.25 ") thick.
  • Cut rounds out and place them onto a baking sheet. Use a tiny cutter or knife to cut out circles in the centre of the biscuits (about the size of a pound coin).
  • Place the boiled sweets into a strong plastic food bag and, holding the open end of the bag tightly closed, smash the bag onto a hard surface (like a worktop), to break the sweets. Place the broken sweets into the holes in the biscuits. If you want to hang them on the tree, make a small hole in the top of the biscuit with a skewer or cocktail stick.
  • Bake the biscuits for about 10 minutes until just golden.
  • Remove the biscuits from the oven and check the small holes for hanging the biscuits are still open.
  • Leave to cool completely before decorating with icing.
  • Allow the biscuits to dry before hanging on the tree.
