Recipe: Easter biscuits





I know, I am a little late in getting this recipe posted but they are so easy to make, you can squeeze in making them before Sunday. 


And who said Easter baking has to stop on Sunday?

We have a whole 2 weeks to keep the kids entertained over the Easter holidays so these are a perfect cheap & easy little activity for you to do with them on a rainy day. 

Which, right on queue is supposed to arrive tomorrow for the next few days. 

Typical bank holiday weather huh!







INGREDIENTS
175g Plain flour
100g Butter, room temp
50g Caster sugar

To decorate: 
Pink & white candy melts
Icing pens
Chocolate beans

METHOD
1. Preheat the oven to 150c/ gas mark 2.

2. Cream the butter and sugar together until they are light and fluffy. 

3. Stir in the flour. Once mixed, knead into balls. If it is a little sticky, add a pinch more flour. 

4.  Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it is 4-6mm. 

5. Cut out your Easter shapes with cutters and place onto a baking tray. 

6.  Put the tray full of dough shapes into the fridge for half an hour or so then put into the oven to bake for 20-25 minutes, until golden. 

7. Leave to cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes before decorating. 

To decorate:
Melt a handful of each colour candy melts in the microwave according the the instructions then spread with a Easton into your cooled biscuits. Add a red chocolate bean to the bunny faces for a nose whilst the candy melt is still runny.  
Wait for them to set before decorating with any design you wish with the icing pens.
