Our Thermomix Christmas Wreath Biscuits make a great homemade Christmas gift!
If you are looking for a great Christmas cooking activity to do with the kids, these Thermomix Christmas Wreath Biscuits are for you! They will love helping you make and then decorate these biscuits and you can even then give the biscuits they have decorated to their friends or school teachers. You can really use whatever decorations you like for these Christmas Wreath Biscuits, although I really think you can’t go wrong with the ‘Writing Icing’ Pens and coloured M&M’s (just like I used for our Thermomix Christmas Biscuits recipe) you can get from the supermarket!
This recipe will make approximately 20 Thermomix Christmas Wreath Biscuits, however you can use cutters which are either smaller or bigger than what I used, just keep an eye on your biscuits though as the cooking time will vary.
As well as being a wonderful homemade gift ( you can also find more Thermomix homemade Christmas gift ideas here), these Christmas Wreath Biscuits will also look lovely on your Christmas Tree – just make sure the kids don’t eat them too quickly though!
Thermomix Christmas Wreath Biscuits
- 185 grams butter
- 220 grams caster sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 375 grams plain flour
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- Writing Icing Pens
- Red and Green M&Ms
- Candy Canes
- Line two trays with baking paper and set aside until needed
- Place the butter, caster sugar and vanilla extract into your Thermomix bowl and mix for 30 seconds, speed 3.
- Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix for a further 20 seconds, speed 3 until the mixture is pale and creamy.
- Add the flour, egg and extra egg yolk and and mix for 10 seconds, speed 4.
- Scrape down the sides of the bowl and select the ‘kneading’ function and knead for 2 minutes.
- Turn the dough out onto a bench which as been dusted with flour or a Thermomat and lightly knead to bring it into a ball and wrap in cling wrap. Pop it into the fridge for 30 mins to chill.
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius and roll out dough (to a thickness of 5mm) between two sheets of baking paper. Use an 10cm biscuit cutter before using the 4cm cutter in the centre to make the ‘wreath’. Use a skewer to make a small hole in the top of the dough (this is where you will thread the ribbon through) and use an egg flip to carefully transfer the biscuit onto your prepared baking tray. Repeat until you have used all of the dough.
- Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes or until the biscuits begin to turn golden around the edges. Leave the biscuits to cool on the trays for 10 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely
- Once completely cool, cut a small piece of the ribbon and thread it through the hole you made in the top of the biscuit (if it has closed a little during baking you can use the skewer to carefully make it bigger) and use the icing and decorations to decorate your Christmas Wreath Biscuits as desired.
