Smarties! They look gorgeous, I think I'll have to go on a mission to buy some new biscuit cutters!
You've inspired me- I went out and bought a baggie of mini m&ms, to use as decorations on the gingerbread I'm making (as a test run) tomorrow....now, if only they would stop *disappearing* like that! Tsk.
Oh yum!! They look delicious ... I've been rather lazy this year and haven't done any baking yet! Oops ... there's still time right? ;)
There's always time for baking! Just don't eat all those M&Ms Manu, buy those cookie cutters Lucy and get the oven fired up Tracey!
...I only ate some, just to check they were okay...no idea *where* the rest went, honestly...Just as well I made a trial-batch of this gingerbread, as I now know what not to do with the real giving-away-as-gifts batch! Thicker, less baking time, less treacle...And yes, now we have to eat all the duds. Sigh. It's a hard life.
You're right Manu. I made mine too thin too. Next time I'll go much thicker - I like them to be a bit lebuchen-y like that great batch you made last year.
Now I'm trying to remember what I made last year- I'm sure it was better than my current attempts so far!With them being this thin and crispy, they would make great tree-decorations though...Sadly we have no tree, so will just eat them until all evidence is gone.
