I am most definitely not a domestic goddess but love a quick bit of baking. Last weekend I got to work to create some rather lovely hanging cookies. They are no different from your usual Christmas biscuits but a clever bit of cutting means your biscuit has a handy slot that you can perch of the side of your cuppa!

I used the Vanilla Shortbread Dough recipe from BBC Good Food as my base for my biscuits and then a set of heart and star cutters that I bought inexpensively last year from Homesense. There are specific hanging cutters available for job but I just use a standard cutter and use a knife (or the edge of another cutter) to make the indent. I’d recommend rolling as thin as possible and experimenting with the positioning of your indent so that they don’t topple off! Do drop me a comment if you decide to give them a go x
