    (0) Christmas Biscuit Recipe

    Preparation Time: 30 mins plus 30 mins chilling | Cook Time: 8-12 minutes  | Makes: 24 Biscuits


    What you need: 

    • 200g Lurpak® Unsalted butter, softened
    • 150g caster sugar
    • 1 egg yolk
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract
    • 350g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
    • 300g icing sugar
    • 2-3 tbsp. lemon juice



    • Heat the oven to 180.C/ 160.C fan/ gas mark 6
    • In a large bowl, beat together the Lurpak® and sugar until light and fluffy. You can also do this in a food processor. 
    • Whisk in the egg yolk and vanilla extract, and finally the flour to make a dough. If the dough is too sticky add a little more flour. 
    • Remove the dough and roll out on a floured work surface to about .cm in 
    • Using assorted cookie cutters, cut out the dough and place onto a lined baking tray. Re-roll the off-cuts and repeat until all the dough is used up. Place the biscuits in the fridge for 30 minutes or until firm.
    • Bake on the middle shelf for 8-12 minutes or until just coloured on the edges.
    • Remove the biscuits from the oven and cool on a wire rack before decorating with icing.
    • To make the icing sift the icing sugar into a bowl and stir in 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, adding more if needed to make a thick paste.
    • Decorate the biscuits and leave on a wire rack for the icing to set. If you want to use them as Christmas decorations, skewer a hole in the top of each biscuit just before baking and thread through ribbon or string.

    • Olive Oil
    • White wine (optional)



    • While you prep the chicken, put your oven to preheat.
    • Mix the butter, lemon juice, olive oil and wine (in case you are using). Use this marination to coat the chicken all over.
    • Season with salt, pepper and parsley.
    • Take a generous amount of minced garlic and rub it over and under the chicken skin.
    • To maximise the garlicky taste, place the garlic head and rosemary inside the cavity of the chicken along with a lemon slice.

    The usual cook time is a minimum of one hour but the larger the chicken, it will require more time. Add another 20 minutes in case you feel it needs more cooking.
