EASTER CELEBRATIONS

From a beautifully laid table to wonderful seasonal touches and a not-to-be-missed sweet treat, here’s how to make the long weekend extra special.

Table matters

The table is the focal point of any good dinner party. Make sure yours is one to wow with floral-printed placemats, fine china and elegant glass candlestick holders.

Something sweet

Spring Flower Shortbread Cookies

Ingredients

2 ¾ cups plain flour
1 tsp sea salt
1 cup butter, chilled and cut into cubes
½ cup golden caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large free range egg yolks
Zest of 1 lemon
Edible flowers, washed

Method

  1. Tip the flour and salt into a large bowl and stir to combine. Add the butter and mix with your fingers until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs.

  2. Add the sugar, vanilla, egg yolks and lemon zest, then use a wooden spoon to mix until a smooth dough is created. Trying to touch the dough as little as possible, bring it together into a disc and chill for at least one hour.

  3. When you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350°F and lightly grease two large baking sheets. Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to a generous 5mm thick. Using a circle cookie cutter, cut out as many circles as you can, before pressing an edible flower or two in the middle of each one.

  4. Arrange the cookies on the greased baking sheets, spacing them slightly apart so they have a bit of room to spread as they cook.

  5. Bake for 20 minutes until the cookies are just turning pale golden around the edges, then transfer to a wire rack to cool.
