Enjoy Easter Biscuits with friends and family

Outside is all gloomy and wet – a great opportunity to spend time in the kitchen to keep yourselves toasty and warm. Here is a Easter recipe that does not include chocolate!

Easter biscuits are a traditional West Country treat that are given out on Easter Sunday as a gift to friends and relatives. They are a lightly spiced currant studded, round biscuit dusted with sugar. Some people decorate them with coloured icing but I prefer them left as they are.

Ingredients Makes 16 biscuits

80g butter
60g caster sugar
2 egg yolks
zest 1/2 lemon
175g plain flour
teaspoon cinnamon
pinch ground nutmeg
30g currants

caster sugar for dusting


1 beat the sugar and butter together until smooth and fluffy
2 add the cinnamon and nutmeg
3 Beat in the egg yolks
4 add the currants and flour and combine to make a dough
5 Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board and using a cutter cut into 16 rounds
6 Put onto a baking tray a cook in a preheated oven 200c gas 6 for about 10 minutes until golden and cooked
7 remove from the oven and dust with caster sugar
8 Allow to cool before eating
