MAKES 20-25 // TIME: 30 MINUTES // EASY

Ingredients

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  2. Add the butter (softened) and sugar to a large mixing bowl and combine.
  3. Add the egg yolk and vanilla essence to the bowl and mix.
  4. Sift in the flour and mix to form a dough.
  5. Sprinkle a little flour onto a clean surface, and roll out the dough to the thickness of a £1 coin. Use an Easter biscuit cutter to create your shapes!
  6. Place your biscuits onto the lined baking tray, and bake for 10-15 minutes. Once cooked, leave to cool whilst you prepare the decorations.
  7. Chop up the chocolate into small pieces. Melt 75g of each chocolate bar into separate bowls; then add the remaining 25g of the chocolate and stir until melted. This helps to temper the chocolate so that it doesn’t melt as easily, and leaves a lovely, glossy finish.
  8. Once the biscuits are cooled, use a piping bag or spoon to decorate your biscuits with the chocolate. Ta dah!

Happy Easter!
