The start of Holy Week and our thoughts are turning to getting ready for the celebrations next Sunday. Some of our favourite treats are Easter biscuits which make a nice change from chocolate ! Here is our recipe which is vegan-friendly !
8oz plain flour
4oz vegan margarine
Handful of currants
1/2 tsp mixed spice
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Enough rice milk to bind
Rub the margarine in to the flour to make breadcrumbs. Add all the rest of the ingredients. Mix to form a firm dough which can be rolled out on a floured board. Roll out thinly and cut out 5 inch rounds with a fluted cutter. Place on an oiled baking sheet and bake at 200C for 10 minutes or less. They should be pale brown when ready. Remove to a cooling rack to cool completely before sprinkling with caster sugar.
Master Shoestring likes a bit of icing on the side with these ! But I think the icing would be better drizzled over the top !
