Get the kids to help you make these delicious and simple biscuits for Easter. Decorate with chocolate eggs and bunnies for fun Easter look


  • 175g butter, at room temperature
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 250g plain flour, sifted
  • 40g ready to roll icing
  • 100g icing sugar, sifted
  • Drop yellow food colouring
  • Chocolate sprinkles and mini eggs

This dough freezes really well so why not make a big batch and then put half in the freezer for last-minute guests!


  1. Preheat oven to 180C/350F/gas 4. Cover two baking sheets with baking paper. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat with a wooden spoon. Mix in the yolk, then the flour to make a dough.
  2. Cover a work surface with baking paper and put the dough on top. Cover with cling film, then roll out the dough through it to the thickness of a pound coin. Remove cling film.
  3. Use an 6cm cutter to cut out 30 biscuits, re-rolling the dough as necessary. Put the biscuits on the baking trays. Bake for 15 mins. Leave to cool.
  4. Roll out the icing and cut 30 x 5cm rounds. Mix the icing sugar with a little water and colouring, and use to fix an icing round on top of each biscuit. Drizzle icing over the top and decorate with sprinkles and eggs.
