This one's for nickyludd:

Bunny Biscuits
Recipe by Cadburys

75 grams butter -- (3oz)
75 grams caster sugar -- (3oz)
1 egg
Finely grated rind of 1 orange
225 gram 98oz) self-raising flour
2 1/2 milliliters ground mixed spice -- (1/2 teaspoon)
50 grams currants -- (2oz)
40 milliliters milk -- (2 tblsp)
50 grams Cadbury's Bournville chocolate
1 large pack Cadbury's milk chocolate Buttons
You will also require:

Rabbit-shaped biscuit cuter
2 baking trays -- greased
Paint brush
Cream the butter and sugar together until pale and soft, then beat in the egg and orange rind. Sift in the flour and mixed spice, then mix in the currants. Mix well to make a pliable dough, knead quickly then roll out on a lightly floured surface to just under 1cm (1/4 inch) thick. Cut out shapes with the cutter, rolling the dough trimmings again in between.

Arrange the biscuits on the prepared trays and bake carefully in a moderate oven (180�C / 350�F / Gas Mark 4) for 10 minutes only.

Brush the biscuits with milk, then return them to the oven for a further 10 minutes until crisp and nicely coloured. Be careful that the edges are not too brown. Lift off and cool.

Melt the chocolate in a small bowl. With the paint brush, brush all the ears, then the paws of the bunny biscuits with chocolate. Dab a little on the tails and stick on a Button.
