What better time than Easter to enjoy some tasty sweet treats? This year make those sweet treats extra special by baking them yourself with the help of some delicious recipes and ingredients from Doves Farm, the UK’s number one organic flour brand.
Ingredients: Easter biscuits
½ tsp mixed spice
100g caster sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tbsp orange rind, grated
2 tbsp orange juice
butter, for tray
flour, for dusting
Topping ingredients: 1 egg white & 2 tbsp caster sugar
Pre-heat the oven.
Rub some butter around the inside of a large baking tray or insert a baking liner.
Measure the flour and mixed spice into a mixing bowl and stir to combine.
Chop the butter into small cubes and transfer them to another mixing bowl.
Add the sugar and beat together until light and fluffy.
Add the egg yolk, grated orange rind and orange juice and beat well.
Sieve in the flour blend and mix well.
Stir in the chocolate chips and bring together a ball of biscuit dough.
Dust the work surface with flour, put the dough in the middle and sprinkle it with more flour.
Roll out the dough to a thickness of 3-4mm/⅛”.
Press a 7cm/2¾ round biscuit cutter or cup through the dough to make circles then gently lift them onto the prepared baking tray.
Gather together the off cuts and re-roll to make further biscuits.
Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Remove the baking tray from the oven and brush the biscuits with egg white.
Sprinkle caster sugar over the biscuits then return them to the oven for a further 2-3 minutes.
