Chocolate Christmas Biscuits

Today our girls did some Christmas baking. They made some yummy biscuits. Here's the recipe:

100g margarine
1 egg
2 cups plain flour
1/4 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder

Using electric beaters, beat margarine and sugar until light and fluffy, then add egg and beat well.  Sift together flour, cocoa and baking powder, then add to the butter mixture. Mix to form a soft dough.

Roll out the dough and cut shapes from it. Place on trays and bake for 10-12 mins at 180C.  Cool.

The girls are getting good practice with their measuring, and also reading the instructions.  Both are learning fractions, so it's good for them to be reading and measuring in fractions of cups!

Of course choosing and cutting out lots of different shapes for the biscuits is always fun.

Every time they bake something, their confidence grows in mixing, measuring, cracking eggs etc.  Pretty soon they'll be able to bake by themselves and surprise us with tasty treats!!

Are your kids doing any Christmas baking?
