Method

Step 1

Pre-heat your oven to 200°C / 180°C fan / gas mark 6.

If gluten and wheat aren't an issue you could use plain wheat flour in place of the rice flour and/or the ground almonds. Raisins can be swapped for other dried fruit and feel free to use a different cutter shape if stars are not for you!

If you don't have a biscuit cutter, you can roll some of the mixture into a small ball  then press into a round biscuit shape on the tray.

Carefully remove the cutter and repeat until you have used up all of the mixture. You can create a hole in the top of each star with a straw before baking if you like, so you can thread them with ribbon to hang on the tree.
