Easy biscuit making activity (and lots of fun!)

I love to bake and I love to eat so I am really pleased the Boy seems to enjoy both of these things too. We have discovered a really easy biscuit recipe which makes a playdoh type consistency which means they can be moulded and shaped by little hands and shoved with chocolate buttons / raisins / hundreds and thousands before being cooked for a very quick 10 minutes. They really are biscuits and not chewy cookies but they are yummy.

The Boy and I make the mixture together (with my beloved Kenwood Chef) and then we cut them out and decorate, if the decorations don’t make it into the Boys mouth first!

Recipe

Ingredients (makes 8 big biscuits or lots of little shapes)

    • 1oz sugar
    • 2oz butter
    • 3oz flour
    • A little bit of milk (if needed)
    • Biscuit decorations eg: smarties, chocolate chips, raisins, hundreds and thousands.

Method

    • Preheat oven to 180 degrees
    • Mix the sugar, butter and flour together until they form a dough. If the mixture is a bit dry (mine usually is) add milk little by little to gain the right consistency. It should be a kneed-able dough.
    • Roll out or use your hands to make shapes, we use our hands and different shape cutters.
    • Decorate (you could also decorate the biscuits when cooked and cooled using the same decorations stuck down with icing sugar, its up to you!)
    • Put onto a baking sheet and bake for 10 minutes, leave to cool (if you can) on a wire rack and enjoy, they are very nice with a cup of tea!
