Easter egg biscuits

Makes 8 biscuits, perfect for sharing with your family!

Ingredients

  • 100g butter, softened
  • 75g golden caster sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 200g plain flour, sifted, plus extra for dusting
  • 1/2 level tsp mixed spice
  • 1-2 tsp milk (if required) 1 egg white
  • 225g icing sugar, sifted
  • Food colouring gels and sprinkles to decorate


What to do

1. Preheat the oven to 200C/180C Fan/Gas 6. Line 2 baking trays with baking paper.

2. Beat the butter and sugar together. Beat in the egg yolk.

3. Add the flour and mixed spice, and mix to form a stiff dough. If too dry, add 1-2 tsp milk until it comes together.

4. Roll out half of the dough on a lightly floured surface to 5mm thick. Bend an 8cm cutter into an egg shape. Cut out 8 biscuits, rerolling the scraps if needed. Arrange the biscuits on one of the trays and repeat with the other half of the dough.

5. Bake for 8-10mins, until pale golden around the edges. Leave to cool on the baking trays for 5mins, then put on a rack to cool completely.

6. Lightly beat the egg white until frothy. Gradually beat in the icing sugar until smooth.

7. Divide between a few bowls and colour each one differently with a little of the food gel. Ice the biscuits and decorate with sprinkles. Leave to set.
