- 250gms unsalted butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups caster sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla essence
- 2 3/4 cups plain flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
Step 1: Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla essence. Use a wooden spoon to stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Divide dough into 2 balls.
Step 2: Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Preheat oven to 160°C. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper. Roll dough out between 2 sheets of baking paper to 5mm thick.
Step 3: Cut out shapes and place onto lined tray. Repeat until all dough is used.
Step 4: Bake biscuits for 8-10 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
Step 5: Add ribbon to decorate.
You can also pop them into treat bags and give them as gifts; we used our chevron pastels treat bags with happy Easter tags.
