From the kitchen
These delicious German-style biscuits will keep for 2-3 weeks and the flavour develops wonderfully as they mature.
Very easy to make, melt-in-the-mouth biscuits. Great to make with kids, as the dough is really great for making cut-out cookies, or for decorating in lots of fun ways.
If properly sealed will keep for up to 3 months. Once the seal is broken (or if not sealed) will keep for 2-3 weeks in the fridge.
You can make these in advance and freeze unbaked or baked.
Keeps for up to a year if sealed properly.
The clue is in the name! You can make this on Christmas Eve if you like. It makes a fantastic gift for cake-loving friends.
This chutney needs a month to mature, and will keep for up to a year.
Make up to a month in advance to be ready for Christmas gifting.
Quick makes from the craft room

Another easy-ish make, to complete in a couple of hours or so.
A very simple project – depending on your sewing experience, you could easily make a few of these in an afternoon.
My easiest cushion pattern – a beginner would be able to make one of these over a weekend.
A lovely hand sewing project, to relax with over an evening. Makes a great stocking filler.
