Put the dough in the middle and roll it out to the thickness of two £1 coins.
Press a 5cm/2” cookie cutter or cup through the dough to make circles then gently lift them onto the prepared baking tray.

Made these biscuits using the left over egg yokes from making the bread. They are very nice. I now make them without the fruit and just vary the flavouring.

Really delicious biscuits. I used some mixed fruit that I had in the cupboard and grated orange rind instead of lemon. My mum used to make something like these but with layers of butter, these were just as nice, and versatile too in times of lockdown.

Delicious. Added some mixed spice in too. Would recommend 50g of raisins/currents as there were too many of the amount of dough, especially for cutting into rabbit shapes!

The recipe is spot on for Easter Biscuits and you would never guess that they are gf. I added half a teaspoon of mixed spice and left out the lemon so they tasted just like my nan used to make. Really lovely biscuits
