Queen Elizabeth and her royal chefs want to make your Easter extra special this year, so they’re sharing a royal dessert recipe. 

To kick off the holiday weekend, the official Royal Family Instagram account posted the recipe, accompanied by a video, for ‘Spiced Easter Biscuits.’ And they look absolutely delicious (not to mention, adorable). 

“The Royal pastry chefs are excited to share their 'Spiced Easter Biscuits' recipe with you to enjoy over the Easter weekend.
