Easter Sugar Cookies Recipe

Baking and decorating biscuits at Easter can be a fun activity for the whole family to enjoy. Why not make extra and post or hand deliver some to your friends and family as a nice alternative to the traditional chocolate egg and as a way to show you care from a distance?

  • 281g all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 170g unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 150g granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  1. Sift and mix all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl and set aside
  2. In a large bowl, beat your softened butter and sugar together until light, smooth and creamy.
  3. Add the vanilla and egg to the butter mixture and beat on a high speed until well combined.
  4. Add your dry ingredients to the wet and slowly mix until combined.
  5. Using your hands, lightly knead to form the dough into a rough ball-shape, cover with clingfilm and chill in the refrigerator for at least 1-2 hours.
  6. Once chilled, pre-heat your oven to 175°C and line your baking trays with parchment paper.
  7. Remove your dough from the fridge and place on a lightly floured surface to prevent sticking. Roll out to approx. 6mm thickness using a lightly floured rolling pin and using a biscuit cutter, cut the dough into shapes and place on your baking sheets approx. 7cm apart. Re-roll any remaining dough and continue to cut your shapes until all the dough is used.
  8. Bake for 11-12 minutes, until lightly browned around the edges. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the baking tray before transferring to a wire rack.
  9. Allow to completely cool before decorating using royal icing, glaze icing or some quick and easy, ready-to-use tubes. Remember to cover liberally with sprinkles and most importantly, have fun!
