Make up a batch of dough with half the quantity of ingredients, then use this to create gorgeous biscuits for hanging from the tree or to fix to the house. Or make Christmas trees that can be used to stand around your gingerbread house.
Roll out the dough to about the thickness of 2x1 pound coins. Stamp out cookies with a snowflake cutter, and arrange on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool, then decorate with small sweets, silver balls and edible glitter. Thread with ribbon or raffia for hanging on the tree.
Roll out the dough and use a Christmas tree cutter to stamp out shapes. Bake as above. Decorate with royal icing (as used for the house) and fix small sweets and silver balls onto the icing, with a star-shaped sweet at the top. Stand them up in blobs of white modelling paste or some ready-to-roll icing. Scatter a little icing sugar on top to look like snow.
