We all get a little too excited around Easter as it means we can eat chocolate for a reason, but don’t let the treats stop at chocolate!
These Easter bunny biscuits are great to give as gifts or can be used as part of the Easter egg hunt. They’ve been created by Mat Follas for the Happy Egg Co for your enjoyment.
Here’s what you’ll need and how to make them –
Easter Bunny Biscuits
Preparation time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 14 mins (plus time for icing)
1 cup of caster sugar
2 happy eggs
2 happy egg yolks
50g ground almonds
2 cups of plain flour
250g icing sugar
1-2 tbsp milk
Food colouring to suit
In a bowl, mix the butter and sugar together with an electric blender, until they form a creamy paste. Add the happy eggs and happy egg yolks and mix, then fold in the almonds and flour with a wooden spoon or spatula until fully combined.
Press the mixture into a greased tray to a thickness of about ¼” (6mm). Place in a preheated oven at 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4 for 10-12 minutes.
The biscuit mixture is ready when it has just started to colour. Carefully turn out onto a sheet of baking parchment on a flat cool surface.
While still warm to touch, use a cookie cutter to press out the shapes but don’t try to lift them out until completely cooled, or they’ll break.
Mix the butter and icing sugar together in a bowl, adding the milk as needed to make a smooth paste.
Mat’s top tip: It’s much easier if you warm the butter.
First, ice the biscuits all over with the plain icing, then add a little food colouring to the icing, spoon it into a piping bag and draw the outlines and eyes.
