Soften the butter and place in a large bowl with the caster sugar. Beat until smooth. Add the flour and beaten egg to make a dough.

Gather the dough into a ball. Place on a lightly floured work surface and roll out to 1cm (1/2in) thickness.

Using a cutter or templates cut from thick card, cut out Easter egg and chick shapes. Place on a lightly greased baking tray. Cook for 10–15 minutes until lightly golden. Cool on a wire rack.

Add 15ml (1tbsp) water to icing sugar to make up icing to pouring consistency. Divide the icing between bowls and add colouring.

Coat biscuits. Reserve a little icing for decoration in covered bowls. Leave iced biscuits to set for half an hour then decorate with any pattern you fancy.
