Grandma's German Biscuits


Hi Everyone,

We baked our Christmas cookies the other day, and I wanted to share the really quick and easy recipe with you all. Sean's Grandma gave me this recipe when we got married and although its a pretty basic easy recipe, I tend to only make them at Christmas time. 

Our own little Christmas tradition.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 cups Sugar
1/2 cup Milk
1 teaspoon Baking Soda

125g Margarine
4 cups Flour
Pinch of Salt
  Boil the sugar, milk and baking soda. Be careful not to burn it. Let cool.
Rub the margarine into the flour and salt.
Add to the cooled mixture

Mix well, roll out on a floured surface and cut into shapes.

Bake at 200 C (390 F) for 10-15 minutes

I doubled the recipe for my family, as you can see...
 
 Our favourite part is the decorating, some I ice and others I dip into melted chocolate or decorate with chocolate buttons.

These never last long in my household... 
 They also make great gifts...


Take care everyone,
