- For this Easter recipe
- you will need:
- 150g (5½ oz) butter
- 150g (5½ 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
Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan oven, gas mark 4). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
Beat the butter, sugar and condensed milk together until creamy. Add the egg (don’t 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.
Roll the dough out on a floured surface to the thickness of a pound coin. Cut shapes out.
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.
<strong>Top tip:</strong> Using condensed milk in this recipe makes the butter and sugar 'cream' together perfectly. This makes the mixture easier to beat if you don’t have a mixer.
