As we begin to celebrate Easter weekend in a very different way this year, the Queen’s chefs have a special treat for us.

Since we’re all spending a lot more time at home (unless you’re a hero key worker – in which case, we salute you!), you might be inclined to bake more than you’ve ever been on this Bank Holiday weekend.

But if you're already bored of baking banana bread (opens in new tab), then changing it up with some Easter treats could be exactly what you and the rest of the family need.

And to provide a helping hand, the Queen’s chefs have shared the recipe for their Spiced Easter biscuits.

The recipe was shared on Twitter, with a video detailing exactly how to whip up this royal treat.

You’ll also need two egg whites and 600g icing sugar, plus the food colouring of your choice for the icing.

If you have all the ingredients you need (or if you can get your hands on them), you’ll find the method on the Royal Family’s official website (opens in new tab).

If it’s good enough for the Queen, we’ll definitely give it a try…
