These little biscuits are so pretty! They are the perfect gift for someone who has everything. Made with love too!
What you need
250g butter, softened
½ teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup caster sugar
2¼ cups flour
¼ cup rice flour
450g CADBURY White Chocolate Melts
Green gel or powder food colouring
12 glace cherries, chopped, for decorating
- CREAM the butter, vanilla and sugar until light and fluffy, and then stir in sifted flours to make a soft dough. Roll between 2 pieces of baking paper to 3mm thickness then chill for 15 minutes or until firm.
- CUT wreath shapes with a 6.5cm cutter and a smaller 2.5cm cutter for the centre. Re-roll the dough gently to make more biscuits. Place on greased trays and bake in a moderately slow oven 150°C for 25 minutes or until pale golden. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes before lifting off onto a wire rack to cool completely. Then place on to a paper lined tray.
- MELT 175g of the white chocolate in a microwave safe plastic bowl on 50% POWER. Begin with 20-second bursts then reduce to shorter bursts as the chocolate melts, stirring well between each burst of power. Only microwave until 75% of the chocolate has melted. The rest will melt as you stir it. Stir in the green gel colour then spoon the chocolate into a plastic piping bag and snip the end. Pipe 72 small holly leaves onto paper lined trays then allow to set at room temperature.
- MELT the remaining 275g chocolate as per the instructions above, then spoon into a plastic piping bag with a fine plain nozzle. Pipe the chocolate in a circular pattern over each of the biscuits to give a wreath effect. Position 2 chocolate leaves and some chopped cherry onto each biscuit to resemble holly, then all the chocolate to set at room temperature then store in an air tight container until required.
