Crisp, melt in your mouth shortbread biscuits flavoured with orange zest – simple enough to bake with children, tasty enough that you won’t want to share!
These simple but delicious shortbread biscuits are perfect for Easter and would make an ideal baking project to do with children; Baking these brought back so many memories of baking with my mum when I was a child. These biscuits are deliciously buttery (although, of course, they are not made with real butter!), crisp, yet they melt in the mouth like a good shortbread should.
To get into the Easter spirit I used a mixture of baby chick, rabbit and egg shaped cutters and then simply piped icing all around the edge of each biscuit. Flavoured with orange zest and vanilla they suit all tastes, so make sure to hide some for yourself before they all disappear! You can of course use any zest you like or even add some extras like raisins or chocolate chips like I have in my egg shaped biscuits.
