Let’s bake Coronation Crown Biscuits that are easy to make and very moreish! This recipe is straightforward – you only need three ingredients. It’s from a Book by Rosemary Wadey that I’ve had for years. It’s easy to increase the quantity and you can decorate the biscuits or just sprinkle with sugar (or leave plain).
Baking at home with children is lots of fun – and these biscuits are just perfect for children to make. There’s some measuring to do, quite a bit of mixing, some rolling out and then use some cutters to make the shapes you want. I’ve used a round cutter and then a small crown to make the hole in the biscuit.
If baking these with children be mindful of the hot oven and be careful taking the baking trays out of the oven.

These are delicious as plain biscuits but if you want to add icing and sprinkles you can!
