Easy peasy scones!

Ok so you might have gathered by now I'm not much of a baker or cook! So when my friend sent me this we thought- that sounds great! If you are on Facebook and you type in 'Lynne Cunningham-Quinn scones.' Lynne and her little girl talk you through how to make scones without measuring etc...Lily is 7 and she made with no help at all and they were actually the best scones we have all ever tasted!

Pizza Making!

Ingredients: tortilla wraps, tomato puree/ pizza sauce and your choice of toppings which might include mozzarella, pineapple, pepperoni, grated cheese, ham, tomatoes, chicken, sweetcorn...

 

Method: Spread your tomato sauce on the wrap and add toppings. Put in the oven for 10-14 mins until toppings are cooked ie cheese bubbling and edges of wrap are lightly browned. 

 

They were yummy! Miss Boertien.

No cook playdough!

Ingredients- 2 cups of flour, 1/2 cup of salt, 1 cup of warm water, 2 tsp of cream of tartar...

Food colouring and flower petals - optional.  

Mix all ingredients together. 

Add food colouring and petals.

Then have fun...if playing indoors can use forks, bowls, pattern making materials, candles etc and if playing outdoors can use sticks, stones, leaves to make monsters, cakes...

No cook playdough!

I've been busy baking cakes, I used up some of my maltesers from Easter to put in the icing, they tasted delicious! All I did was put the maltesers in a freezer bag and bashed them with a rolling pin until they'd crumbled, then mixed it into my butter icing. Miss Codona

We have been making cupcakes! - Using the exact same amounts of butter, sugar, eggs and self raising flour. It was fun to count out scoops of each ingredient!

Top hats! Chocolate, marshmallows and smarties...so simple! Miss Boertien

Method:
Add all of your dry ingredients to a bowl and mix!
Add in your butter and 1 egg, when it gets a bit tricky to mix, use your hands and roll into a ball.
If you have time, refrigerate dough for an hour before rolling.
Roll out and cut into desired shapes.
Pop in the oven at around 190 degrees for around 12-15mins until cookies have gone slightly darker.
Once cooled you can decorate with icing or melted chocolate!

Enjoy!

Make Playdough!

Making playdough … my children enjoyed making it but also had hours of fun playing with it afterwards! 

Leo wanted to make it black much to Lily's disappointment! So she chose to add caramel flavouring and glitter!
