You could try changing the mixed spice to Oil of Cassia. This is what they did originally, so if your after that traditional tasting Easter Biscuit try Cassia Oil.

I find www.homeherbs.co.uk do a pure essential oil for the strong, distinctive taste.

I added the mixed spice in, when adding the currents. They still tasted yummy, but is that when i should of added it?
My kids LOVED these.
Yes, the spice is added as a dry ingredient with the currants. Glad you liked them. The Cookit Team

i substituted butter with low fat margarine and sugar with approx 1/3 worth of sucrolose sweetener (aspartame is linked to cancer so i wouldnt recommend it). this made my biscuits reasonably healthy and low calorie, but still sweet tasting.
Thanks for your suggestion. A great way to make a healthier biscuit. The Cooki Team

Use cassia oil instead of mixed spice to give the authentic easter biscuit taste. it can be bought in boots stores (uk) around easter time (my local store has it in stock now). You may need to ask at the pharmacy counter.

These are great for Xmas too, forget the currants, use Christmas shaped cutters and decorate with coloured icing for a fantastic Christmas treat.

Hi there! Would you mind if I share your blog with my myspace group? There's a lot of people that I think would really appreciate your content. Please let me know. Many thanks
Name: Gabriella 6th October 2014
it was an ok recipe but if you take out the currants and maybe add another flavour like ginger or vanilla extract and use icing it would taste lovely


Name: Izzy 3rd April 2015
I made these they where so nice! I didn't add currants instead I added extra mixed alice. To the icing I added some too. Mixed since in icing reminds me of Xmas cookies!
