How cute are these!! and so super easy to make
Christams Tree cookies
2 cups of plain flour
1/2 cup icing sugar
200grams of butter

put that all in to a vitamizer/ blender
zap in short bursts till looks like breadcrumbs
then add 2Tablespoons of cold water
zap again till forms clumps and
then break out the baking papers and roll between sheets
cookies cutter and away you go!
bake in oven @ 180c for 15mins
or until golden brown
to icing mix is just 2cups of icing sugar and boiling water
dip cookies and let the acess drip off
then sprinkle!...i love sprinkles!!
