Traditionally in Britain Easter biscuits are made to be given to guests on Easter Sunday but this year is a little different.

It's really sad that our family Easter get togethers have been disrupted but it's good to keep up traditions and by continuing doing what we have always done is important in helping to keep us healthy and happy.

So this year I have made the biscuits but instead of eating them all I have bagged them up and dropped them on the doorstep of neighbours who I know are on their own today, with rubber gloves of course!

I hope you like the recipe and also that you have the flour - I know it's in short supply.

Easter Biscuit Recipe

The traditional biscuits for friends and family to be served on Easter Monday

Ingredients

  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 80g sultanas (I used raisins as I didn't have any)
  • 100g soft butter
  • 250g soft butter
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • zest of a lemon
  • 250g plain flour sieved
  • ½ teaspoon of cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon star anise powder
  • Icing sugar to dust.

Instructions

  1. Beat the sugar and butter together until it is soft and white.
  2. Add the egg and beat until it is fully integrated.
  3. Fold in the flour, baking powder, spices and zest.
  4. Add in enough milk to pull the mixture together and make it pliable. Use more or less than suggested to make the mixture firm and not too runny.
  5. Gently fold in the raisins or sultanas.
  6. Roll out to approx 5cm and cut out with a fluted stamp. If you don't have one use a glass.
  7. Place on greaseproof paper on a baking tray and bake at 200 degees for 11 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Lay on a cooling rack and sprinkle with icing sugar whilst they are still hot
