These sparkling Scandinavian style Christmas biscuits-cookies look just magical, especially when hung with ribbon from the Christmas tree! You need special snowflake biscuit-cookie cutters, and also edible glitter or sparkling silver or white dusting powder. If you cannot source edible sparkle or glitter dusting powder, they still look beautiful if decorated with white royal icing, piped into trellace work patterns to enhance the snowflake shape. These magical snowflakes make ideal Christmas gifts, and can be packaged in cellophane bags with a pretty and seasonal ribbon attached. They last for up to 14 days in an airtight tin & stored in a cool place, assuming they last that long!
