I made these simple but beautiful cookies for my mom's birthday. I used the sugar cookie dough from Nigella's book "How to be a Domestic goddess", made double stars using a special cutter, and filled the holes with crushed boiled sweets. (I had a bag of Fox's Glacier Fruits, divided by color.) Simple as that! And I think they turned out great! The fruity center really flavors the cookie, and makes what is otherwise quite plain into something special.
(The original plan was to do hearts, and remove "70" from the middle, but that proved to be way harder and indeed quite impossible.)
