Stained-Glass Cookies

4 oz soft unsalted butter
2 oz caster sugar
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1-2 tbs milk
1 small bag boiled lollies
Icing sugar, to dust

Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale and creamy. Sift in the flour and stir in the milk.
Use your hands to form the mixture into a soft dough and roll it out onto a lightly floured surface until 1/4 inch thick. Use a cookie cutter to cut into shapes. Cut a 1/5-2/4 inch circle from the centre of each biscuit.
Carefully transfer the biscuits to the lined tray. Place a boiled lolly in the centre of each hole and bake biscuits in the oven for 15 minutes. Set aside on the tray to cool. Dust with icing sugar.
