My mum made these biscuits with Milo over Christmas. I’ve been holding off posting about them because it was the beginning of January and everyone was on diets/healthy eating drives, but hopefully now everyone is back to having treats every now and then! (or maybe that’s just me).
Be warned, this recipe makes A LOT of biscuits. You could almost certainly halve the ingredients and still use the one egg, but I haven’t actually tried it so you get the proportions from the original recipe (in German).
400g butter, softened
1 packet/1 teaspoon vanilla sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
premade chocolate glaze, or melted chocolate
as many sprinkles as you can get your hands on
Mix all ingredients together into a dough. Roll out to half a centimetre thick and cut out shapes with cookie cutters.
Bake for 10-15 minutes at 150-175 degrees. (Recipe says 5-7 minutes but that’s nonsense). You want them to be just slightly browned.
Decorate. That’s the point of them!
