Easter biscuits

Easter biscuits

Makes 20

For the biscuit dough:

100g butter, softened

100g caster sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla extract

275g plain flour

To decorate:

300g icing sugar

1-2 tsp water

Variety of food colouring and sprinkles

  1. Preheat the oven to 180˚C/ 160˚C fan/ gas mark 4 and line two baking trays with non-stick parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Beat until well combined.
  3. Stir in the flour until it forms a soft dough.
  4. Wrap the dough in cling film and allow to chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  5. Remove the dough from the fridge. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough between two sheets of parchment paper to about 1cm thick.
  6. Use a variety of Easter themed cutters and place them onto the prepared baking tray. Once they are all cut out, place the trays in the fridge for a further 30 minutes.
  7. Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes or until pale golden brown. Allow to cool completely.
  8. For the icing, sieve the icing sugar into a bowl. Add the water a little at a time to make a lightly runny icing; it should still be quite thick. Divide the icing amongst bowls and add your favourite colours. Use a piping bag to pipe different designs and decorate with sprinkles.
