1.Process the butter, sugar, spices and a pinch of salt in a food processor until combined. Add flour and pulse until the dough resembles crumbs. Add the egg; process until the dough just comes together. Divide the dough in half; shape into discs. Wrap each disc in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 30 minutes.
2.Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Line three large oven trays with baking paper.
3.Gently tap the wrapped lollies with a rolling pin to crush lightly.
4.Roll dough between two sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick. Cut out 24 biscuits using cutters; use smaller cutters to cut out centres. To hang them from the tree, make a hole in the top with a straw. Re-roll scraps, if needed.
5.Transfer the biscuits to the prepared trays, about 3cm apart. Carefully fill each centre with a pile of crushed lollies.
6.Bake biscuits for about 10 minutes or until the edges start to brown. Stand on trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to cool.
