Whichever part of the world you are in, if you celebrate Christmas then you are likely to have your own little traditions that you like to revisit each year. Growing up in my family we had a few traditions which we repeated each year.
On Christmas morning we would line up at the hallway door (in order of youngest to oldest) before going in to see the presents beneath the tree, with the specific time set the night before by mum and dad – “not before…”
We also used to leave out milk and cookies on Christmas Eve to refuel Santa on his epic journey – with a carrot for Rudolf too of course, and in the morning there was always an empty glass and crumbs to show he had made his rounds.
This year Fisher & Paykel decided to make it official and help us all to keep a tradition alive by designing a custom glass and cookie cutter for friends and family, along with this Christmas cookie recipe from the blog team.
The recipe is based on a traditional spiced Christmas cookie, with muscovado sugar added to bring a deep richness to the flavour. If you don’t have one of our custom cookie cutters, cutting a small notch in the biscuits will more than suffice to get Santa’s attention.
Merry Christmas and I hope you can keep some tradition alive or start a new one with your friends and family this year!
Tip: Roll the dough out nice and thin to achieve the perfect biscuit crunch!
