Step One

Preheat the oven to 200°C/Gas 6.
Lightly grease 3 baking trays.

Step Two

Place the butter and sugar in a bowl and cream together until light and fluffy.

Beat in the egg yolk.

Step Three

Knead the mixture gently on a lightly floured surface and roll out to 5mm thick.

Take some cookie cutters of your choice.

Easter-themed cutters have the best impact- think bunnies, eggs, or chicks.

Alternatively, if you don’t have any cutters at home, try using the rim of a glass or mug.

Cut into your chosen cookie shapes, place on the prepared baking trays and bake for about 8 minutes.

Step Four

Lightly beat the egg white.

Remove the cookies from the oven and brush lightly with the egg white.

Return the cookies the oven for another 4-5 minutes or until pale golden brown.

Lift gently onto a wire rack to cool.

Step Five

Roll out the icing and cut out shapes to match your cookies.

Brush the back of the shapes with a little water and attach to the cookies.

Step Six

Mix the icing sugar with enough water to form a smooth paste.

Place into a piping bag with a writing nozzle and pipe your chosen designs onto the cookies.
