I thought it might be fun to do a little Easter baking! These are fun super easy, spicy Easter and spring biccies that are great fun to make, and eat! You can leave the spices out if you prefer of course or add any flavouring you like! Something fun to do with the kids too 🙂 The icing is flavoured with either lemon, fresh raspberry or fresh blueberries.
I use low fat spread and “half spoon” sugar – but you can use normal butter/spread and any sugar you like! 🙂
For the biscuits you need:
300g plain flour
140g Sugar (if using “half spoon” sugar then just 70g)
180g Dairy free spread
Optional spices: 2 tsp Cinnamon, 1/2 tsp Nutmeg, 1/2 tsp Cloves
Sugar and cinnamon
Lemon juice, raspberries and blueberries
Sugar balls etc
Preheat the oven to 175 C.
Put the spread and sugar in a bowl and cream together. Combine the flour and spices if using and mix really well. Once it forms a dough, wrap it in clingfilm and pop it in the fridge for 20 mins if you have time (you can also save it in the fridge for use later that week or you can freeze it for months if you need).
Remove and roll out. Use whatever shaped cutters you like to it your biscuit shapes and transfer to a baking tray.
If you are using currants for bunny eyes and noses then add those now. Sprinkle with a little sugar and cinnamon. Place in the oven and cook for 8 – 12 mins or until golden. Remove and allow to cool on a wire rack.
Once cool you can ice the biscuits. Mix up your icing powder with lemon juice or fresh mashed raspberries or blueberries and then spread on the biscuits (or just water if you prefer). Add sugar decorations if you like. Allow to set and then eat!
