  • 1 large egg
  • 225g (8oz) plain flour

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/gas 6. Grease two baking sheets. Cream the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk. Add the egg and whisk again.
  2. Add the flour, spices and currants and mix well. Lightly knead, then roll out to a 5mm (1/4 inch) thickness. Use a bunny or other shaped cutter to press out about 12 biscuits, re-rolling the dough as necessary.

Cool on the baking sheet for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Tie ribbons around the necks of the bunnies.
