Childrens Easter Bunny Biscuits

This is ideal for kids to help make, have fun and have some messy time!

250g butter, softened150g caster sugar1 medium egg yolk2 teaspoon vanilla extract375g plain flourIcing sugar, to dust and fix decorationsChocolate drops and mini marshmallows

Put the butter, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla extract in a large bowl and beat together using a wooden spoon or a hand mixer.
Whisk in the flour – the mixture will start coming together. Using your hands, bring the mixture together and knead to make a smooth, firm dough. Wrap in clingfilm or pop in a plastic food bag and chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Grease 2 baking sheets. Preheat the oven to 190°C, 170°C, gas 5. Dust a clean surface with icing sugar and roll out the pastry to the thickness of a pound coin. Use a rabbit-shaped stencil or cutter to cut out the biscuits. Re-roll dough to use up scraps.
Put biscuits onto the baking sheets and cook for 6-7 minutes or until lightly golden. Leave to cool on the baking sheets for a few seconds then use a spatula to transfer to a cooling rack. Leave to cool completely. The biscuits will harden during cooling.
Mix a small amount of icing sugar with water and use this to stick on chocolate drops for the bunnies’ eyes and mini marshmallows as fluffy tails.
