These fun and delicious biscuits can be made up to a week in advance. Store in an airtight container until giving as a present.

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. Put the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and cream together until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg yolk, milk and vanilla then sift in the flour and mix to form a soft, pliable dough.
  2. Roll out the dough on a lightly-floured surface and carefully cut out about 20 label shapes.
  3. Lift onto a baking tray and make a small hole with a skewer so you can thread a ribbon through. Bake for 20 mins until pale golden, then allow to cool.
  4. Melt the milk chocolate in a bowl over a pan of gently simmering water. Dip half of each biscuit in the chocolate. Let the excess drip off then place on a sheet of nonstick baking paper and allow the chocolate to set. Tie a length of festive ribbon through each biscuit label.
