Easter Biscuits!

Easter Biscuit recipe Kaboodlemum
Easter is early this year and rapidly approaching, I’m not really complaining,  because Cream Eggs.

I love the approach to Easter; the shops brighten up with Spring colours, we have bonnets to decorate, gifts to give… What’s not to love?
Here at the Kaboodlehouse we get behind Easter, alright, we might not celebrate it in the traditional and religious way, but it’s nice to celebrate the tradition.
I decided to make some cookies to get us excited about the upcoming holiday.

Hello everyone!
Here’s something Miss Kaboodle and I recently came up with! We fancied baking and when I asked what type of cake Willow would like to make she told me she wanted to bake a rainbow cake and so we came up with this fun way of baking a rainbow cake! Continue reading

Sunday Afternoon Tea and Biscuits

 

These sweet treats we’re the first thing I thought about this morning when I woke up. A few weeks ago we got ourselves a new oven and I’ve been desperate to bake since! Unfortunately, with our holiday and lack of funds, I haven’t had the chance  to bake anything, so today is the first day I have had the time and ingredients to bake something. I knew exactly what I wanted to bake and got all my ingredients together as soon as I had drank my morning brew! They’re quick, easy and super tasty! 

Prep : 20 minutes.

Cooking time: 8-10 minutes.

Yeild: 12/15+ depending on the size of the cutter you’re using. (we made 24 small cookies this morning using a small round cookie cutter (please read: the top half of a plastic surprise egg…. #resourceful ☺️)

What you’re going to need;

Ingredients:

  • 100g unsalted butter 
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 medium egg, lightly beaten
  • 275g plain flour
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Other bits and bobs:

  • Baking tray
  • Greaseproof paper
  • Cookie cutters
  • Rolling pin
  • Cooling rack

How to bake these little beauties;

  • Preheat oven to 190*C/ gas 5/ 375*F
  • Place some grease roof paper on a baking tray and pop to one side
  • Cream butter and sugar until combined
  • Beat in egg and vanilla, a little at a time, until well combined
  • Stir in the flour until it comes together as a dough
  • Knead it a little bit 
  • Roll out on a lightly floured surface at about 1cm/ half inch thickness.
  • Using cookie cutters, cut out your shapes 
  • Place your cut outs onto the tray lined with Greaseproof paper and place in the oven
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes
  • Remove from the oven and leave on the tray for 3 minutes before transferring over to a cooling rack.

This is my go-to recipe when I need a sweat treat or something to entertain Miss Kaboodle. Her little creative self goes to town on the dough, I always separate a small portion of the dough for her to mess around with while I use up the rest, and we always end up with special biscuits she makes herself!

It’s a really easy to make recipe, you don’t have to wait for the dough to start using it, you just make it and go! It’s easy to work with, easy to roll and bakes to perfection every time. The great thing about this recipe is, once the cookies have been baked, they’re perfect for decorating. Whether you’re just chucking a few shop bought tubes of icing at the kids to make patterns with or planning to make some for a friends baby shower, this recipe will suit all of your needs! You don’t have to decorate them, they’re sweet perfection, crumbly, melt in the mouth deliciousness that are oh-so-scrummy when dipped in a nice hot mug of tea, with or without icing on top!
