I am very bad at cooking, but that doesn't stop me from admiring other's creations on the net, and I like to stick to kids recipes as they are so much easier for all of us!
The Asda Recipes website has tons of different ideas in their Cooking With Kids section, and I think we might attempt to make these Cheese Dad Biscuits for Father's Day. Here's all the ingredients you need and how to make them:
- 175g plain flour, plus extra for rolling out
- Good pinch of mustard powder
- Good pinch of, cayenne
- Good pinch of salt
- 100g butter, diced
- 40g mature Cheddar, grated
- 25g Parmesan, grated
- 25g sesame seeds
- 15g poppy seeds
- 1 large egg, separated
- Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Line two baking trays with baking paper. Sift the flour, mustard, cayenne and salt in a bowl.
- Add the butter and rub in between your fingers and thumbs until it looks like crumbs.
- Add the cheeses and seeds and mix evenly. Mix the yolk with 4 tsp cold water and add to the flour. Use a round-bladed knife to form a stiff dough. You may need to add a few more drops of water.
- Roll out on a lightly floured surface to 5mm thick. Cut out A and D letters using a small knife. You could use a pastry cutter to shape the round part of the D. Gather up the leftover dough and repeat. You should have six As and 12 Ds.
- Space out the biscuits on the baking trays and brush with the egg white. Bake for 15 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack
It doesn't look too difficult, even for someone as hopeless as me, and I think my boys will love making them. And it's educational too... ;)
