Laura McCulloch has raised more than £800 through her Free Range Fridays! She said: “As well as raising money for BHWT and the great work they do, Free Range Friday is a great way of raising awareness of hen welfare and championing free range eggs!! I always do it at work so my colleagues have something to look forward to at the end of the week…I start at 10 with a queue around my desk and by lunchtime all the sweet treats are usually gone!”


175g soft unsalted butter

200g caster sugar

2 large free range eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

400g plain flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

300g icing sugar (sieved)


Cream the butter and sugar and then add in the rest of the ingredients until you get a dough. Wrap the dough in cling film and put it in the fridge for about one hour. Then it is ready to roll out and cut into shapes.

Bake at 180 degrees (160 fan) for 8-12 minutes or until golden
