 Vegetarian 

Ingredients

batch of universal dough (see below)
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp mixed spice
plain flour, to dust
125g icing sugar

Method

STEP 1
Make the universal dough, but add the cinnamon, ginger and mixed spice to the flour mixture. Chill the dough for 15 mins. Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6 and line two large baking sheets with baking parchment. Dust a clean work surface with flour and roll out the dough to the thickness of a pound coin, before cutting out biscuits using a 6cm snowflake cutter. Arrange the biscuits on the baking trays. Re-roll any offcuts and repeat the process.

STEP 2
Bake for 10-12 mins until the edges are set. Leave to cool on the tray for 5 mins before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Mix the icing sugar with 1 tbsp water until you have a pipeable consistency. Fill a piping bag with the icing and decorate the biscuits as you like. Will keep in an airtight container for three days.
