Traditional Easter Biscuit Recipe

At Easter time it’s a fab time to get in the kitchen and enjoy some baking with the kids and there is nothing better to make with them than these Traditional Easter Biscuits and we have a really easy recipe which should make about 25 biscuits, for you to follow here



  • 3 Cups of Plain Flour
  • 1 Cup of Caster Sugar
  • ¾ Cup of Currants
  • ½ Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ¼ Teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 225g Unsalted Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Lemon


What Else you will Need

  • 2 Large Mixing Bowls
  • Electric Whisk, we recently upgraded ours and got it from Amazon here  
  • Wooden Spoon for mixing
  • Cling Film
  • Fluted Biscuit Cutter, we used a 7.5cm one and got it in a set of 11 from Amazon here 
  • Greaseproof Paper
  • Baking Tray



  1. Sift the plain flour, cinnamon and nutmeg into a one of the mixing bowls.
  2. In the other mixing bowl whisk the butter and sugar together until its thick and smooth. Then one at a time whisk in the eggs
  3. A little at a time fold in the flour mixture until you have it all mixed together
  4. Finely Grate the Lemon and mix the zest only into the mixture
  5. Then add in the currants making sure to stir them in well, so evenly throughout the mixture
  6. Roll into a ball, wrap in the cling film and place in the fridge for at least 2 hours
  7. Line the Baking Tray with greaseproof paper and pre-heat the oven to 180°C
  8. Divide the biscuit dough into 3 portions, place 2 back in the fridge to keep it cool and roll out the first portion to about 4mm thickness. Cut out the biscuits we used a 7.5cm fluted cutter and make about 25 biscuits but obviously depending on the size cutter you use will depend on how many biscuits you manage to make.
  9. Place the cut out biscuit dough onto baking tray with grease proof paper and repeat with the two balls in the fridge. Keeping them in the fridge until you cut them makes it easier to cut them out.
  10. Sprinkle some caster sugar on top of each biscuit and then bake in a pre-heated oven for 10 minutes or until firm to touch.
  11. Let biscuits cool completely before placing them in an airtight container, they are good to keep for 3 to 4 days, thought that’s unlikely in our house!!
