Easter Biscuits

Easter is a great time to get cooking in the kitchen with kids and we’ve now got a nice little list of Easter treats for you to choose from. Traditional hot cross buns, delicious Easter scrolls and these simple Easter egg shaped biscuits. There’s a task for almost every age - measuring out ingredients, kneading and rolling the dough, cutting out the biscuits and of course the decoration.  Perfect for gifts or for using up any leftover Easter chocolate. Happy baking x

Nutrition Note: There are so many benefits to your children that come with involving them in the kitchen. It boosts their confidence and self esteem, their fine motor skills, it teaches them a thing or two about patience, planning, mathematical concepts as well as nutrition and food appreciation… and so much more.

Ingredients

  • 125g butter
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 1/4 cup plain flour, plus 1/4 cup extra

Method

Step 1

Using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat for around 8-10 minutes, or until pale and creamy, scraping the mixture from the side of bowl half way through. Add the vanilla and egg yolk and continue to beat until well combined. -

Step 2

On a low speed, gradually add 1 1/4 cups sifted flour and beat until a dough forms. Sprinkle half the extra 1/4 cup flour on a clean surface. Place the dough on the floured surface and gently knead, sprinkling over remaining flour if needed. -

Step 3

Roll the dough between two sheets of non-stick baking paper until approx. 5mm thick. Place in the fridge for about 30 minutes or until it is firm enough to cut into shapes. -

Step 4

Preheat the oven to 160°C. Cut out shapes using a cookie cutter and place the biscuits on a baking tray lined with non-stick baking paper. Place in the oven and bake for 12 – 15 minutes or until the biscuits are lightly golden. Allow to cool on a tray before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. -

Step 5

We used melted chocolate to decorate our biscuits. -
