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


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


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


  • 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 or a silicone baking mat 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.
