Mix through the flour, baking powder, salt, mixed spice and vanilla extract until you have a biscuit dough.
Cut out biscuit shapes, place on the lined baking tray, then using a smaller cutter or a small knife cut out the center of each cookie, arranging these around the tray aswell.
Crush the sweets using a rolling pin, they don’t need to be very fine pieces and arrange them into the centre of the cookie. Place in the oven
Cook in the oven for about 15 minutes. As soon as they come out of the oven, using a straw or end of a piping nozzle, poke out a hole at the top of each cookie. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
String through some ribbon and hang on the tree.
