We used gingerbread men and Christmas tree biscuits cutter shapes which were a little small so when our biscuits grew in the oven they lost their shape a little. They did taste delicious and the right mix of ingredients. We decorated ours using icing sugar and a little mix of ground cinnamon which gave the biscuits a nice kick and flavour.
