Methods

  • Using a hand-held electric whisk or free-standing mixer, beat the butter and sugar for 3-5 minutes or until smooth and creamy.
  • In a jug, beat the egg and vanilla extract with a fork, then gradually add to the creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.
  • Sift the flour (and cocoa powder if making the chocolate spoon) into the mixture in 2-3 batches, mixing in gently to make a soft dough
  • Divide the dough into 2 equal pieces and pat each into a disc. Wrap in cling film. Then chill one disc in the fridge for several hours to firm it up. Place the other in the freezer for later use.
  • Remove the chilled disc from the fridge 15-30 minutes before rolling, so it can soften. Roll out the dough between 2 sheets of baking parchment to the thickness of a 50p piece. If it’s sticky, dust lightly with a little flour. Peel off the top sheet and then, with a spoon cookie cutter, cut out 16 spoon shapes.
  • Peel back the dough trimmings and lift the spoons, on their parchment, onto a baking tray. Chill for 15 minutes and repeat the process with the trimmings if you’ve not already cut out 16 spoons. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 °C/160 °C fan/gas 4. Bake for 10-12 minutes until golden brown around the edges. Leave them to firm up for a few minutes on the baking tray, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  • Decorate the biscuits: cut the Mini Creme Eggs in half vertically, using a small sharp knife. Melt the chocolate in the microwave or heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water and, with a small paintbrush, apply to the chocolate outer shell side of each halved egg before carefully placing on the biscuit spoons. Leave to set before serving.
