Thermomix Easter biscuits

No Ratings So Far
Make these gorgeous Thermomix Easter biscuits with the kids this Easter. They are absolutely adorable and the recipe is super simple to follow. Thermomix Easter biscuits are the perfect fun activity for the kids. You can get them to cut out the dough and also decorate the biscuits with any colours they like. It will keep them busy and create lots of fun biscuits for the easter table. Why not prepare a little basket with some green shredded paper and place the easter biscuits inside. It will look like a super cute easter nest full of little eggs or chicks and is a great way to decorate the table at home. The biscuits taste very refreshing with the lemon and orange zest and make a super light treat. I discovered the perfect trick to using your Thermi TM5 measuring cup to cut out these beautiful eggs out of desperation for a cookie egg cutter. After looking around in the whole kitchen I picked up the measuring cup and looked at it, realising it actually does look quite oval like an egg. Once I tested it on one biscuit, I was so happy that my Thermi has yet another great ability that no other machine has. So for all of you out there, use your TM5 measuring cup to cut out these gorgeous little Easter chicks. If you don't have the TM5, no problem. Either use an oval cookie cutter or even an egg shaped cutter if you have it. Otherwise you can always make yourself an egg shape with paper and cut out the dough using your knife.

  • 1 egg

    Yum. These are really tasty. I found the dough too soft to roll so i put in fridge for 20mins first.
