If you have a budding Masterchef in your house then it can sometimes be difficult to do some cooking without an enthusiastic ‘helper’.

Depending on how old your kids are, these Christmas biscuits are easy to prepare in advance or they can cut up the lollies under supervision.

Christmas cookies
So easy they're child's play

With any luck, you might already have the ingredients in the cupboard.

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Makes: approx 20 servings

You can also use pre-made icing if you are feeling particularly lazy

1 packet plain sweet biscuits, I use Marie, Milk Arrowroot also works well
3 tablespoons softened butter or margarine
Approximately 1 cup of icing sugar
2 teaspoons of milk
Assorted lollies: I used red liquorice, spearmint leaves, chocolate covered pretzels and candy eyes (these were a gift from the US, so I am not sure where you would normally buy them. Smarties work equally well for eyes, or silver balls)

Using an electric beater, beat the butter or margarine until soft, then add the icing sugar. You want quite a thick icing, but you can add a little bit of milk if it needs to be loosened up. Brandy also works well this time of year, but not for the kids.

Holly biscuits
Is this holly or mistletoe, who actually knows

Prepare your ‘decorations’. For the Mistletoe biscuits, I cut up red liquorice into small rounds, then put them next to a Spearmint leaf.
The hardest part is not eating the antlers

For the Rudolph biscuits, I cut a round of liquorice for the nose, two eyes, then carefully cut the chocolate pretzels to make antlers. It doesn’t really matter if they aren’t even. It probably doesn’t even matter if they are not very ‘antler’ like – kids don’t care.
Ice the biscuits (or let the kids do it) and then they can add the decorations.
Intense concentration is not helped by scoffing lollies at 8am

Hint: make extra ‘decorations’ for the ones that inevitably go missing into little mouths.
