Make these Easter biscuits with this easy video recipe from Kirstie Allsopp. They're the perfect Easter treat - kids will love decorating them.

Top tip: Using condensed milk in this recipe makes the butter and sugar 'cream' together perfectly.† This makes the mixture easier to beat if you donít have a mixer.

Ingredients

  • 150g (5Ĺ oz) butter
  • 150g (5Ĺ oz) brown sugar
  • 175g (6oz) condensed milk
  • 1 egg
  • 175g (6oz) plain flour
  • 115g (4oz) self-raising flour
  • 1tsp mixed spice
  • Zest of 1 lemon (optional)
  • Coloured icing tubes and confectionary, to decorate

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180įC (160įC fan oven, gas mark 4). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
  2. Beat the butter, sugar and condensed milk together until creamy.  Add the egg (donít worry if it looks like its curdling), beat well and then add the flours. Mix to a firm dough and cover in clingfilm then refridgerate for 30 mins.
  3. Roll the dough out on a floured surface to the thickness of a pound coin. Cut shapes out.
  4. Transfer the biscuit shapes to the trays and bake for 10 mins until light golden.  Cool completely on a wire rack. Ice and decorate the biscuits.

I found this recipe disappointing, in that the biscuits spread so much on baking that the shapes that I had cut out became largely indistinguishable. If you are looking for nicely shaped biscuits, then this recipe is too wet for this. Does taste nice though - and I guess my biscuits for the school competition now authentically look like a 5 year old made them!
