Christmas Treats

I like to be quite creative and I also like being thoughtful with gifts, so why not make a creative gift? As it's Christmas time I am lovely the taste of cinnamon in almost everything right now. In Coffee, hot chocolate, porridge and the odd cinnamon flavored pastry. So i wanted to put this flavor into something else. Of course the best option was to bake some biscuits (/cookies). After looking on Pintrest for some decoration inspiration, the idea was sold to me! I went out and brought some cookie cutters from a shop called Tiger. Then I got myself some lovely icing pens from poundland, and a few sprinkles of course. I will leave the recipe I used under the pictures. Hopefully you will like the look of then and wont be able to resist making some for your family and friends as a last minute treat. Oh and don't forget to leave some for yourself...and for Santa. 1
