1 egg, beaten
5ml vanilla extract
10ml mixed spice
40ml golden syrup

  7. Roll out half the biscuit mixture on a floured board so it is 4mm/1/4in thick and cut out 12 Christmas trees using a 7.5/3in Christmas tree cookie cutter.

  8. Repeat with the remaining dough.

  9. Place on a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes until just golden around the edges.

To decorate, either scatter with granulated sugar before baking or dust with icing sugar when cooled.
