These are fun Easter biscuits that you can make with your favourite biscuit recipe. We just made fork biscuits and added food colouring and some decorations. Fork biscuits are really quick and easy as there are only three ingredients, and no eggs or cutters. There’s also the chance to get your hands dirty which my kids really enjoyed.

Pre-heat your oven to 180C / 160C fan and line a baking tray with baking paper

Mix the butter and sugar together
Get your toddler to measure the butter and if it’s not soft, give it quick blast in the microwave to make easier to mix. Put it in a large mixing bowl.

Weigh the sugar and add it to the bowl.


Beat together with a wooden spoon until well combined.


Add the flour and colour
Get your child to weigh the flour out into a small bowl then add it to your mixing bowl. Carry on mixing then use your hands to bring it all together into a soft dough.


Add yellow food colouring. We had to add quite a lot before it was bright enough. Mix it into your dough so it is evenly distributed.

Form the biscuits
Roll small pieces of dough (the size of a walnut or teaspoon) into round balls. Place on your baking tray, leaving a wee bit of space between them for spreading.Gently press down on each biscuit with your hands to flatten them a little. This is a good step for really little chefs to help with, especially if they are too small to help with rolling the balls out.


Bake your biscuits
Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until they are golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack.


Decorate your biscuits
Draw on a face and feet to turn your biscuits into Easter chicks. If your kids are old enough they could enjoy doing this, but if not, this could be a job for a grown up’s steadier hand.
