Ingredients

Biscuits

  • 125 g vegan block butter softened (See notes)
  • 75 g caster or golden caster sugar
  • 200 g plain (all-purpose) flour
  • 50 g raisins or currants
  • ½ teaspoon mixed spice
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • zest of one orange optional (See notes)
  • pinch of salt
  • ½-1 tablespoon oat milk any neutral plant milk will do

Glaze

  • 1 tablespoon oat milk or any plant milk of your choice
  • 2 teaspoon agave syrup can be substituted with maple syrup
  • extra caster sugar to sprinkle over the glaze

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4.
  • Put softened vegan butter and caster sugar in a large bowl or bowl of your food processor and mix using wooden spoon/hand held mixer or paddle attachment of your standing mixer until pale in colour and fluffy.
  • Sieve in the flour, spices, baking powder and salt and continue mixing until dough starts coming together.
  • Add zest of an orange (if using) and currants or raisins and continue mixing.
  • Add just enough oat milk to bring the dough together (½-1 tablespoon) and take it out onto lightly floured counter.
  • Roll the dough out so that it’s roughly 5mm thick and using 6cm round, fluted cutter (or any cutter of your choice) cut out the biscuits, re-rolling the dough until it’s all used up.
  • Transfer biscuits to non-stick/lined baking trays and bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes.
  • While biscuits are baking prepare the glaze by mixing oat milk and agave syrup.
  • Take biscuits out of the oven and brush them gently with the glaze and sprinkle with some caster sugar to create a layer of sugary coating.
  • Return biscuits to the oven for another 5 minutes until light brown and fully baked.
  • Take them out of the oven and leave on the baking trays for a few minutes before you transfer them onto the cooling rack to cool completely.

Notes

  • Nutritional information is approximate, per biscuit and should be treated as a guideline only. 
  • For best results use higher in fat vegan block butter (Stork, Naturli) instead of the ones in a tub.
  • You could use substitute orange zest for that of a small lemon. 
  • Easter Biscuits will keep for 1-2 weeks if stored in the airtight container.
