Preheat oven to 180°C. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Stir through egg and yolk using a wooden spoon. Sift in salt and flour and mix well.

Shape dough into a ball, cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Roll out cookie dough and cut out cookies using the round cookie cutter.

Cut out the centres of each cookie using the star-shaped cookie cutter. Place cookies on a greased baking tray.

Crush different coloured sweets using a rolling pin.

Carefully scatter sweet shards within the cut-out centres of each biscuit.

Bake until cookies are cooked through and sweets have melted.

Cool, then carefully remove from baking tray  using a spatula. Serve.

Great idea:
Use straws to make holes in each biscuit before baking. thread ribbons through  the holes and hang  them as decorations.
