Friday, April 10, 2009How To Make Easter Biscuits Recipe
Happy Easter weekend! We are featuring a recipe on how to make Easter biscuits today. Making biscuits for Easter isn't really all that hard, but it's worth the extra effort you put into it. It is almost like making regular biscuits, but a few more ingredients (and for some, a few more steps) are needed to make them special for this Easter holiday.
How To Make Easter Biscuits
3 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. mixed spices
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 c. butter
3/4 c. sugar
1/2 c. (or more) currants
2 eggs, beaten
First you sift the four, baking powder, mixed spices and cinnamon into a bowl; add butter. and cut into small pieces. Mix it all in using your fingers until mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. (Imagine taking bread crumbs, and crumbling them up really fine, that is how it should look)
Then just stir in the sugar and currants.
Next add the eggs and mix till it all forms a stiff dough.
Roll this mixture out on a lightly floured board to about 1/4 inch thickness. You can cut the dough into rounds using a 3 1/2 inch fluted cutter.
Now all you have to do is to place the rounds onto a greased baking sheet, or sheets, if they all don't fit on one sheet, you can always use another one!
Just about done now, all that is left to do is to bake the biscuits in a preheated 350 degree oven for 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. (Oven temperatures differ, so start checking after about 10 to 15 minutes)
When done, cool the biscuits on a wire rack.
These biscuits go great with just about anything you are serving for Easter.
Have a wonderful Easter holday and thanks for reading!
