Christmas is only a few days away, and in the air you can smell that good scent of celebrations, warmth and longing for closeness that characterises this time of year. It is the time when we think of our loved ones, get together to exchange greetings and gifts and since we believe that a sweet homemade gift is always much appreciated, why not bake these Christmas biscuits?

Enjoy not only baking them, but also wrapping them in nice paper with colourful ribbons and lace.

Let’s begin!
