Easter Biscuits Recipe
Makes 15-17 biscuits
Oven temp 200 degrees C

Ingredients
75g caster sugar
100g butter (softened)
1 egg separated
200g plain flour
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground mixed spice
50g currants
1 level tablespoon mixed peel
1-2 tablespoons milk
egg white
caster sugar for sprinkling

Method
  • Cream together to butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Mix in the egg yolk.
  • Sift the flour, salt, and spices into the butter and sugar mixture.
  • Add the fruit
  • Add the milk, you should have a soft dough.
  • Onto a floured surface gently roll out the mixture, until 1/2 cm thick.
  • Cut out your biscuits using a fluted round pastry cutter, I used sized 3inch / 7 1/2cms
  • Place them onto a lined baking tray and bake for 10 minutes oven temp 200 degrees. 
  • Remove them from the oven and using a pastry brush carefully brush each biscuit with egg white and then sprinkle with caster sugar. 
  • Place back in the oven for a final 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven when lightly golden and allow to cool for ten minutes before carefully transferring to a cooling rack.

I'm entering my Easter Biscuits into March's Calendar Cakes baking challenge hosted by Laura from Laura Loves Cakes and co-hosted by Rachel from Dolly Bakes.  The theme this month is Easter Extravaganza - yes I know these are not technically cake but they have the same ingredients (almost!).
