More Christmas baking!

Postby docmaggoo » Sun Dec 22, 2013 9:27 am

Only dh and me eat Christmas cake - so I've decided to not make one this year and try my hand at making stollen instead.
Didn't seem to rise during proving like I has hoped - but once baked it's turned out brilliantly!

Also make some biscuits too. I asked James and Eleanor to pick the cutters - hence I've ended up with more sci-fi and prehistoric themed baked goods!! :lookaround:

@ems101
I've not tried stained glass window biscuits yet.
But I'm going to do some on Christmas Eve before I leave for work.
Did you make the "glass" bit too runny? Would that have made it run.

Pop them in the fridge after cutting before you bake them.
