Home > Food > Life > TMC Family Recipe of the Week: Easter Chick Linzer Cookies

For the cookies:

225 g plain flour
150 g butter
75 g caster sugar

For the icing:

250 g icing sugar
yellow, orange and black food colouring


1. Place the flour, butter and sugar in a bowl. Rub the butter into the dry ingredients until a dough forms. This can take a few minutes.

2. Once the dough is formed. Place in the fridge for at least an hour or in the freezer for 30 minutes.

3. Preheat your oven to 180°C. Use an circle cutter to cut rounds. Then take a piping nozzle and make 2 circles into the cookie to make a chick shape. Take a fork to the outside of the cookie to create detail around the edge.

4. Bake for 10/12 minutes until the edges turn golden brown.

5. Leave to cool completely.

6. Make the icing by combining water 1 tsp at a time with the icing sugar. It needs to be thick! Divide the icing into bowls, the biggest amount for yellow, smaller amounts for black and orange.

7. Assemble your cookie by spreading yellow icing in the middle. Sandwich the cookies together and then add the feet and eye details.
