Spiced Easter cookies
This spiced Easter cookies recipe can make between 36-48 biscuits depending on the size of the cookie cutters you opt for.
Spiced with mixed spice and ground cinnamon, these warming, spiced Easter cookies take just 15 minutes to bake. To decorate, use pastel-coloured fondant or icing to decorate each shape. Top with sprinkles like hundreds and thousands, or edible glitter to make them really shimmer.
These spiced Easter cookies make great food gifts for Easter. Just whip up a batch, decorate and carefully package in Easter-themed boxes for friends and family.
Leftover biscuits can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days – but of course are best when they are served fresh.
