HAPPY EASTER! I couldn’t resist posting another Easter Baking recipe for you. This time for Easter Biscuits. I don’t know what it is about Easter but I always want to bake so much, there’s at least 3 other things I want to bake too. I was going to schedule this recipe for next Wednesday as I usually only do one baking post a week but I thought as it was Easter, I’d do an extra baking post for you. Yet again I didn’t get to try these myself, damn you lent, but my friends and family kindly tried them for me and all said how wonderful they tasted. I was so pleased with how these turned out.
Easter Biscuits Ingredients:
Makes 15 Biscuits
100g butter (softened)
80g caster sugar (plus extra for sprinkling)
1 egg yolk
220g plain flour (sieved)
60g dried mixed fruit (or currants)
1 teaspoon cinamon
1 teaspoon mixed spice
2 tablespoons milk
Preparation – 15 minutes | Baking – 15 minutes
1. Preheat the oven to 180°c. Grease and line two baking trays with baking paper.
2. With an electric whisk, beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Then add the egg yolk, a little at a time.
3. Fold in the flour, spices, mixed dried fruit/currants and milk then knead for a couple of minutes to form a soft dough.
4. Lightly flour your surface and use a rolling pin to roll out the dough to around a 5mm thickness. Then cut out your biscuits. Continue this until all the dough is used. Sprinkle the biscuits (generously) with caster sugar.
5. Place your Easter Biscuits on the prepared baking trays, place in the oven and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven, sprinkle with extra caster sugar and leave to cool.
I would love to see your photos on Twitter (@AmiRoseBlog) if you have a go at making these yourself. What is your favourite thing to make for Easter?
Until next time,
They look delicious, I love all things home baked, I am not great at making biscuits myself, they never seem to go crunchy! Cakes are more my thing, them I am good at haha

These look yummy! I should really start baking more with currants as they’re less likely to go melty and weird in the oven. My chocolate chip baked goods always come out looking a bit weird :/

They look so yummy, i love baking biscuits, will try them for the Greek Easter next month.
They look delicious, they remind me a little bit of the Welsh cakes. I have noticed a trend this year on Easter biscuits, and that is the sugar crust with a “bunny tail” made out of candies. 🙂
Thank you. It’s funny you should say that as I’m going to make Welshcakes next week with my leftover mixed fruit.
Great recipe and they look delicious!! Thanks for sharing Ami 🙂
Thank you, no problem. I really want to make them again so I can actually try them.
They look good and your pictures are perfect! However, it’s not really my taste 😀
Where do your ideas come from? I’d love to hear 🙂
Thank you. Usually from my Mother or Grandma as they used to bake a lot when I was younger.
Oh deliciousness ! how I wish I could bake and not eat (eat it all ) it till the last crumble ! Unfortunately for me I have a bad case of sweet tooth. need to bake those biscuits
Thank you, I’ve got a sweet tooth too, I don’t know how I managed it.

Thank you, no problem. I’d love to see your photos if you do have a go at making them.
Oooh these look so good! You have the perfect biscuit cutter for these biscuits too, Now, when are you coming by with a batch of these? 😉
Thank you, yes I was amazed when I found it, I didn’t think I had one. You’ll have to wait until next year I’m afraid.
They looks so delicious, going to try them for our orthodox Easter. Thanks for posting, really great recipe.
Thank you, no problem at all.

These look amazing. Now I HAVE to go buy some cinnamon (I have been saying to myself I should buy it for a while now). 😀
Yes you HAVE to. Let me know what they’re like if you do have a go at making them.

I can say the photos of easter biscuits are nice, but eating it is a whole lot better! Haha. Easter has come to pass this year, unfortunately, my diet now consists of low glycemic foods only.
Thank you 🙂
