Who doesn’t love a bit of good Easter baking? With mini egg brownies and rice crispie treats being the norm, I thought I should try something different and I’m SO glad I did. Inspired by an Italian Easter panettone I bought a couple of years back, these are essentially vanilla Easter biscuits (think shortbread, but healthier and softer) filled with strawberry jam and deliciously sweet Trapa Milk Chocolate with Stevia. Guaranteed to be a firm favourite for everyone, these biscuits will disappear within a matter of seconds...
Thinking of freshly baked biscuits reminds me of happier childhood memories, as I used to love to help bake with my mum when I was younger. These biscuits will be a lot of fun for younger hands, so I strongly recommend getting your best cookie cutters out during the upcoming Easter holidays and giving these a go. I've also used Trapa's Milk Chocolate with Stevia, which is a healthier, sugar-free, gluten-free and palm-oil free choice of chocolate, so you'll be doing yourself and your kids a favour. I've also chosen the flavour of strawberry jam (and I seriously recommend getting a good one for these) but if you prefer raspberry jam that also works just as well.
As a side note, these can also be made into vegan biscuits. Just swap the butter for vegan butter and use a dark chocolate instead of a milk chocolate variety!
The only way I can describes these biscuits is...think of vanilla shortbread biscuits, mixed with jammy dogders and finished with a melted chocolate layer. They're really fun, and great for a sport of Easter baking!
