{Christmas Eve Party}

Evening blog land!! Merry Christmas bloggers!

Whoop whoop! I am so excited!
We are having a few guests this evening so I have been busy preparing, but me and some other girles are getting you in the mood with a little Christmas blog party - go take a wander and you never know what you will find! Gayle , Julie, Kirstin, Sherry, Barbara, Diana, Michelle & Kelly

Now whats does a Christmas party need...um in my book sugar cookies! These ones have an added touch of Christmas with some Cinnamon yum! And here's the recipe if you fancy making a batch!

300g of plain flour

1 1/2 teaspoons of Baking Powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon (i added a bit more! )

1/4 teaspoon of allspice

1/4 teaspoon of ground cloves

75g butter

150g caster sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

tablespoon of milk

Mix together half the flour with the other dry ingredients. Cream the butter & sugar together until light & fluffy. Beat in the egg, vanilla extract and milk.

Stir the spiced flour into the mixture, then add slowly the other half of the flour until it forms a dough stiff enough to roll. You may not need all the flour. Wrap the dough in cling film and leave in the fridge.

To bake preheat the oven to 190c / 375F / gas mark 5. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to about 3mm thick. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters. Place on a baking tray and bake for about 8 minutes until slightly golden. Allow to cool completely before icing.

I made up some basic royal icing and used sprinkles and cake glitter. These will be the ones we will leave out for Santa tonight, lucky Santa hey ;)

Hope you enjoy your other party gifts too.

Have a amazing and magical Christmas. See you all soon.

Love L K & M x
