For Mums’ group this week, we decorated cookies, and I demonstrated how to make stain-glass biscuits.

Use any plain biscuit recipe, press out shapes and hollow the centre to fill with a lolly.

At mothers' group, Aïcha decorated some biscuits, but I'm sure more decorations ended up in her tummy than on the biscuits!
