How to Make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
  2. Place the ingredients in a food processor and blend until just combined. Turn out onto a well-floured work surface and bring together with your hands until you have a rough ball of dough. Use a floured rolling pin to roll out the dough to about 1/2 cm thick. Use a decorative or festive cookie cutter* to cut shapes from the dough, then place on a greased baking tray and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes. Remove from oven, brush with eggwhite and sprinkle with 100s and 1000s. Return to the oven for a further minute.
  3. Allow to cool completely before packing in tissue-lined boxes.
