So, today’s recipe is for traditional spiced Easter cookies! Up until a few days ago, I didn’t even know there was such a thing called Easter biscuits (cookies). However, feeling the festivities approach, and wanting to bake something (but still a little reluctant to try Hot Cross Buns – don’t ask!), I came across this recipe from Baking Inspiration. I haven’t changed anything in the recipe, other than using a slightly smaller cookie cutter (6cm). In hindsight, it was a little too small, and their recommended 7.5cm would probably have worked better.
These traditional spiced Easter cookies remind me of fruit shortcake biscuits you can buy in the supermarket, and with chewy currants and a sprinkle of sugar, they taste pretty good!
