Christmas Stars

So Merry Christmas.  My Christmas wish for you, is to enjoy every happy moment, cherish the memories and surround yourself with the ones you love.

 So today's share is a Christmas yummy for you.  I made little honey star biscuits (a recipe I found at one of my MOPs (Mother's Group) craft sessions.  It was so yummy and I had to try and remember how to make it for myself!

Of course, if you don't have time to ice your biscuits (I did, but the kids ate them too fast!!) a nice little dusting of icing sugar will do.

I packaged my star biscuits into a little glass preserving jar.  Added a belly band of Hessian Ribbon, Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and a string of stars punched from Gold Foil card.

Of course, I can't leave you without a little recipe.  I hope you enjoy as much as my kids and I did!

Merry Christmas to you and your family xx
