(Goblin is 26 Months)We have our Christmas lunch at work this week so I thought I'd take in some Christmas biscuits. Goblin helped me make them. We did the whole thing on the floor on a plastic mat that I cleaned thoroughly first. Goblin loves washing his hands so getting him to clean up before starting wasn't difficult.
350g / 12oz plain flour
175g / 6oz light soft brown sugar
100g / 4oz butter
1 medium egg
4 tablespoons of golden syrup
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1½ teaspoon of ground ginger
Heat the oven to 180°C / 350°F / Gas Mark 4
Cook for 15 minutes.
Then we put the biscuits in the oven to cook for 15 minutes and cool - Time for Goblin to have a bath and a nap. When he woke up we decorated the biscuits with red, green and white icing, silver balls, little marsh mallows and sparkly edible glitter (which makes everything taste better). Goblin liked dribbling the icing and kept saying "painting".
