Sweeten up the festive season with biscuits that are sure to make Santa and his team smile.



125g salted butter, at room temperature

1/2 cup (115g) caster sugar

1/4 cup (60ml) milk

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 cups (225g) self-raising flour

1/2 cup (70g) custard powder

Silver and gold sparkling cachous, to decorate



  • Step 1 Preheat oven to 180°C. Line two baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
  • Step 2 Use an electric beater to beat the butter and sugar until pale and creamy. Beat in milk and vanilla extract. Fold in the flour and custard powder.
  • Step 3 Press the dough into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to rest.
  • Step 4 Divide the dough into manageable portions. Roll out one portion on a sheet of non-stick baking paper to about 1cm thick. Use Christmas cookie cutters to cut shapes and place on the trays. Decorate with cachous.
  • Step 5 Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden. Cool for 5 minutes on the trays before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.
