So the schools have finished for the Easter holidays and I’m finished work now until Tuesday so we decided to do a spot of baking and these biscuits seemed very appropriate..
My little helper got started with the mixing of the butter, sugar and egg yolk..
Then we added the dry ingredients and fruit…
We used about a tbsp of milk to make a nice soft dough..
After a bit of resting we cut into shapes..
After 10 minutes of cooking we took them out of the oven and brushed with the egg white and then sprinkled with the caster sugar..
Then after another 10 minutes they looked nicely coloured..
Well obviously I had try one warm from the oven and they are pretty good! Lovely and light and love the pieces of fruit in them. I do think a pinch of cinnamon or mixed spice would’ve made even better! As they are though they won’t last long!
Would I make these again? Yes, great biscuit
