Yesterday we made Easter Egg Biscuits from The Popina Book of Baking by Isidora Popovic. It's a gem of a book, particularly for it's sweet and savoury tart recipes, which are simply fantastic (and all vegetarian too, incidentally). The book was a Christmas present from my very good friend Abigail - you can see her rather fabulous Popina nectarine and summer berry tart here.
These biscuits have become a bit of an Easter tradition now, as they are so easy to make and, well, egg shaped. So easy in fact, that you can let small people "help", answer the phone, do the vacuuming and resolve tantrums all at the same time and still not mess up the recipe.
They are just a plain biscuit recipe, with the addition of cocoa and honey. They are so good. The honey gives them a musky sweetness and the cocoa is not overpowering. The white chocolate icing goes particularly well with the cranberries. I just used pistachios on mine and left the other nuts, but you could use whatever you had in the cupboard. I love the contrast of the red and green and white on top of the biscuits. It did occur to me that these are very Christmassy colours and you could do these same biscuits with Christmas cookie cutters for a festive themed biscuit.
