Easter Bunny Biscuits!

It’s hard to believe that it is Easter this weekend – despite the extra days off work and the chocolate eggs that have been filling the shops for months, it’s still arctic outside and just not the ideal weather for running around the garden on an Easter egg hunt! 

If you’re planning a mainly indoor Easter this year, then these biscuits could be just the thing to give you a warm, fluffly feeling after a lunch of roast lamb. Delicious and almost too adorable to eat, grab one of these cute cutters from Etsy and follow Jamie Oliver’s simple lemon butter biscuit recipe below to bake these bunnies!

125g butter {at room temperature}
100g caster sugar
1 free-range egg
200g plain flour
juice and zest of 2 lemons
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1 pinch sea salt
plain flour, for dusting
3 tablespoons demerara sugar

Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until creamy. Beat in the egg until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the flour, lemon, baking powder and salt and mix until you have a ball of dough. Cover and place in the fridge for 2 hours or until firm.

Preheat your oven to 18080°C/350°F. Roll out the dough on a floured surface until 1/4cm thick. Cut out shapes and place on a greaseproof tray. Sprinkle with demerara sugar and back for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are light brown. Transfer to a wire rack and cool.

Enjoy and have a very Happy Easter!
