any ideas for easter cooking activities?

we always seem to do the chocolate nests with eggs and feel like a change! Just wondering what you all have planned.

We're making peppermint creams (yuk!) cos I found some cute but small easter cutters in a cheapy shop! We're also going to make simple flower arrangements - been saving lids from jars for ages which we cram onto a block of oasis so they are nice and full, then chop off the excess. One block does about 10 lids. Plenty of greenery from our gardens and a few bunches of daffs, a bit of ribbon and hey presto. The children love doing them. They use a pencil to make the holes for the daffs cos their stems are a bit too delicate but the rest they can cram straight into the oasis. Goes down well with the mums!

You may already know this, but you can make an egg -shaped biscuit cutter very easily by pressing the cap of a [clean] can into an oval shape

Easter Biscuits


Makes about 30



Traditionally made Easter currant cookies. Why not try replacing the currants and spices with 3oz of chocolate chips?




12oz (350g) plain flour


pinch salt


1 tsp. mixed spice


6oz (150g) butter


4oz (100g) caster sugar


3oz (75g) currants


1 lemon, finely grated rind


1 egg beaten


1 tbsp. milk



Sift flour, salt and spice into a bowl


Rub in butter, add sugar, currants and lemon rind


Beat egg and milk, add to make a pliable dough


Roll out just under a quarter inch (5mm) thick


Cut out biscuits using a 3inch(75cm) fluted cutter and transfer to lightly greased baking sheets


Use scraps to make more biscuits


Bake at 375F, Gas Mark 5, 190C for 10-12 minutes


Cool on a wire rack
