Easter Biscuits

A recipe from sarahdall.co.za

Makes 15 large eggs/bunnies

Ingredients

Biscuit dough

  • 100g castor sugar
  • 200g butter
  • 30og cake flour
  • pinch of salt

Royal icing

  • 2 egg whites
  • icing sugar

Preheat the oven to 150°C.

Mix together the butter and sugar and add the sifted flour and salt, to form a dough. Roll out the biscuit dough 1/2cm thick and cut out desired shapes using a cutter. Place on a greased baking tray and bake for 5 – 7 minutes or until lightly golden and cooked through.

Remove the biscuits from the oven and place on a cooling rack to cool. While the biscuits are cooling, make the icing. Beat the egg whites until stiff peak and slowly add the sifted icing sugar to form a thick glossy icing; make sure it is piping consistency.

Place the icing in a piping bag and pipe decorations as desired.  Thin the icing with a little water, if you want a runnier icing.

Have fun icing and enjoy!
