    • For this Easter recipe you will need:
    • 150g (5½ oz) butter
    • 150g (5½ oz) brown sugar
    • 175g (6oz) condensed milk
    • 1 egg
    • 175g (6oz) plain flour
    • 115g (4oz) self-raising flour
    • 1tsp mixed spice
    • Zest of 1 lemon (optional)
    • Coloured icing tubes and confectionary, to decorate


    • Preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan oven, gas mark 4). Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.

    • Beat the butter, sugar and condensed milk together until creamy.  Add the egg (don’t worry if it looks like its curdling), beat well and then add the flours. Mix to a firm dough and cover in clingfilm then refridgerate for 30 mins.

    • Roll the dough out on a floured surface to the thickness of a pound coin. Cut shapes out.

    • Transfer the biscuit shapes to the trays and bake for 10 mins until light golden.  Cool completely on a wire rack. Ice and decorate the biscuits.

    Top tip for making Kirstie Allsopp’s Easter biscuits

    Top tip: Using condensed milk in this recipe makes the butter and sugar 'cream' together perfectly.  This makes the mixture easier to beat if you don’t have a mixer.
