They make lovely Christmas tree decorations as well as smelling and tasting great.
You’ll find the Panasonic blender deals with the hard boiled sweets very well, and it makes the biscuit dough a breeze.
The only thing I wouldn’t recommend it for, is to crush the cloves, as they proved a bit hard and were difficult to clean out of the jug.
In future I would use a pestle and mortar on the cloves.
You will also need a selection of cookie cutters, I used the largest diameter for the outside, and 2 sizes smaller for the inner part.
A straw makes a perfect cutter for the loop holes, and then some pretty Christmas twine or ribbon to finish them off.
As part of being a Panasonic ambassador for the past 9 months I have been testing out their food processor, blender, steam microwave and juicer.
In this biscuit recipe I used the Panasonic MX-ZX1800SXC blender.
And I really loved it!
It can do everything my normal blender can do, like smoothies and grinding, and more. It can also be used for soups and even ice and sorbets.
This year was the first time I’ve ever had a real Christmas tree, and as I’m sure those of you who buy them already know, it’s a little overwhelming when you go to choose one.
You want the perfect tree, and you compare them to each other, meaning you’re tempted by bigger, and fuller trees each time.
Needless to say we got home to a scene like the Griswalds Christmas tree.
So you get the tree home, realise it’s not quite the right size, and then go into your box of decorations and realise you don’t have enough, or they’ve broken because you probably should have spent a bit more time packing them all away last year.
Thankfully, cute stained glass cookies or biscuits are still very much in fashion, look good, taste good and smell good too.
These Christmas stained glass biscuits were the perfect solution.
