Jewel Biscuits - a vegan christmas treat


                               A fab recipe for festive vegan treats this Christmas

Jewel Biscuits
(Should make 25 biscuits)
150g/5oz/three quarter cup caster sugar
150g/5 oz/three quarter cup vegan margarine
5 tablespoons of soya milk
300g/10 oz/1and a half cups of plain flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
boiled sweets - different colours is good


1. Preheat oven to 200C/400F and grease baking sheets.

2. Cream together the sugar and marg. Mix in the soya milk and vanilla and then the flour. 

3. Roll out on a floured board (to just under 1 cm thick) and cut into shapes using festive cutters or a circular cutter.

4. Lay on baking sheets. Make a hole in the middle of each biscuit and place a sweet in each hole.

5. Bake for about 10 minutes for soft bake cookies or a little longer for dryer, crunchy ones. The sweets will melt down and fill the hole in the oven and then reset once cool.

If you want these for tree decoration ONLY you can prolong their life by replacing the sugar in the recipe with salt and adding a couple of tablespoons of PVA glue to the mix (do not eat after doing this option!!) Prior to baking make a small hole in the top with a drinking straw - once cooked and cooled you can thread ribbons through for hanging.
