Ingredients

  • 500g Plain Flour

  4. Roll out the dough (5mm thick)
  5. Cut out 30 biscuits
  6. Put 15 aside, with the second 15 cut out the Easter shape. If you have enough leftover dough make a few more biscuits

  9. Once completely cold spread chocolate onto all of the whole biscuits and place a cut-out biscuit on top

As it is Easter we have used a rabbit cutter, but you could use an egg shape, lamb or cross. You could also use jam or a thick custard instead of chocolate
