Stress & mess aside, I really do love baking with The Boys. John in particular loves nothing more than putting on his apron & chef’s hat and getting his hands floury. It doesn’t actually matter what you tell him we’re making, he will always tell people he’s been, “making biscuits!” But as far as recipes for baking with kids go, I’m always a fan of something, quick, easy & with flavours that meet their approval and these Rainbow Cookies come out tops.
If there’s one smell that takes me back to growing up in the home that housed Granny’s baking, it is shortbread. Alongside her Empire Biscuits, Shortbread is one of the recipes that Granny is best known for. Delightfully Scottish, these sweet buttery biscuits are what dreams are made of. And let me tell you, Granny has got the art of Shortbread mastered!Read More
If there’s one recipe that people always ask for from Granny, it’s her Empire Biscuit one! These little gems are so simple & so versatile. You can go all traditional and opt for a Glace Cherry or a Jelly Tot on top, or you can get creative with fondant and top them with any shape you like! We particularly love going all festive with holly sprinkles, just for Santa.Read More
I’ve always wanted to try making stained glass biscuits and the festive season seemed like the perfect opportunity to indulge my inner child. So drum roll please for these Stained Glass Christmas Biscuits! Granny used to have an array of recipes books which I remember flicking through as a child. In fact, I’m pretty sure she probably still has most of them.Read More
Our boys love to bake. J in particular loves nothing more than putting on his apron & chef hat to get his hands floury. And for someone who is as much as a perfectionist as me, I’ll be the first to admit that I don’t find baking with toddlers especially easy! So when it comes to recipes I’m always on he look out for something easy but fun and these Melted Snowman biscuits ticks both boxes.
