Updated: Feb 19, 2021

Welcome to our first blog post!!


These cute Easter shortbread cookies are guaranteed to keep the kids entertained for at least an hour! This recipe makes 12-18 cookies.



You will need

  • Standard flour - 225 grams

  • Castor sugar - 75 grams

  • Butter - 150 grams (at room temperature)

  • Vanilla paste

  • Rainbow sprinkles (optional)

Let's get baking!

Step 1: Pre- heat oven to 160 degrees.

Step 2: Combine flour, sugar and a dash of vanilla paste into a large mixing bowl.

Step 3: Mix together on medium speed with paddle attachment until a smooth dough has formed. If you are adding sprinkles, now's a good time to throw them in to the mix. If you don't have a paddle attachment for your mixer, you can use a wooden spoon - might be a bit of a work out!

Step 4: Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to approximately 5-10 mm thick and cut with desired cutters or dough cutter. Or, get creative and cut your own shapes!

Step 5: Place onto a well greased or lined baking tray and bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes until your cookies turn a light caramel colour.

Step 6: Leave to cool completely.

Step 7: Once cooled, used your desired icing colours and get decorating! Store in an air tight container.

Any left over or spare dough can be re-rolled and used again and raw dough can be kept in plastic in the fridge for 2 weeks.


You will need

  • Egg whites - from 2 eggs

  • Water - 2 tablespoons

  • Icing sugar (sieved) - 3 cups

  • Cream of tartar - 1/8 teaspoon


Step 1: Combine all ingredients into a mixing bowl, mix with paddle attachment on medium speed until consistency is smooth.

Step 2: Remove from the bowl and split into batches for different colours.

Step 3: Add your desired food colouring to the icing batches and mix.

Step 4: Pour icing into piping bag, or use tooth picks for decorating your cookies!
