These are simple and a lovely Holy Saturday activity to do with your little ones leading up to the Easter Sunday. The recipe isn’t groundbreaking, neither is the method. They’re just so pretty I thought I’d share 😊.
Ingredients and Method
100g softened butter
225g self raising flour
a few drops of vanilla essence
100g caster sugar
1 large beaten egg
1 tbsp milk
For the icing I just use packets of fondant icing and some icing tubes as well as various decorating sprinkles in the cupboard (I’m using them all up before the big move).
- Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/ Gas 5. Put greaseproof paper on two baking trays.
- Rub the butter and flour together with your fingertips until it’s like breadcrumbs. Add the vanilla, sugar, beaten egg and milk and form a dough. Roll out and cut out the biscuit shapes you want, laying them on the trays.
- Bake for between 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.
- Roll out the fondant icing. To ice use a tube of icing to randomly put some on a biscuit, use the same cookie cutter to cut out the animal shape and then lay this on top of the randomly iced biscuit. Decorate. That simple ☺️.
