How to decorate Easter biscuits

Once you’ve made your cookie dough, split into balls and flatten onto a smooth surface. Gently push your toppings of choice into the cookies then put in the fridge for another 30 minutes to chill.

Easter biscuits recipe



  • unsalted butter 85g, softened
  • caster sugar 75g
  • light brown muscovado sugar 75g
  • egg 1
  • vanilla extract 1 tsp
  • self-raising flour 175g


  • Maltesers Mini Bunnies 5
  • Galaxy Golden Eggs 15
  • M&M’s Eggs 24


  • Step 1

    Beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, beat to combine, then mix in the flour and ¼ tsp salt. The dough will be very soft, so put it in the fridge for at least 30 minutes to firm up.

  • Step 2

    Once chilled, divide the dough into 16 pieces and roll each piece into a ball. Put the balls onto a baking sheet lined with baking paper and flatten each ball into a disc with your hand.

  • Step 3

    Gently push 1 Maltesers Mini Bunny into 5 of the cookies, 3 Galaxy Golden Eggs into 5 of the cookies and 4 M&M’s Eggs into 6 of the cookies. Put in the fridge for another 30 minutes to chill.

  • Step 4

    Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes until golden. Cool on the tray before eating.
