This week it was back to baking for Tabitha and I, as she is a beginner I thought it was best to stick to tried and tested simple recipes. So I have shared this recipe on the blog before (you can find it here) but I haven’t made them in a long time so decided it was a good one to try for our next baking session as it is pretty simple and involves both mixing and rolling the dough.
- 125g of Flour
- 137g of Cheese
- 82g of Butter
- 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder
- 1/4 tsp of Salt
- 1/4 tsp of Black Pepper
- 62ml of Water
- Preheat the oven to 200C and line a baking tray with parchment
- Add the flour, cheese, butter, baking powder, salt and pepper to a large bowl and combine
- Slowly add the water bit by bit to create a firm dough
- Once combined you can start rolling out the dough on a lightly floured surface
- I did this by taking a small chunk of the dough at a time and rolling it to a thickness slightly larger than a pencil
- Repeat this until you have used all of the dough, I would recommend leaving 2-3cm between the sticks when baking as they do spread
- Then you can pop them in the oven for 8-10 minutes, until golden brown
If you are looking for recipes to try out with your toddler than I definitely recommend this one, it wasn’t too messy and was easy to get them involved and learning new skills for both mixing the dough and then rolling it too. Even if she wasn’ entirely happy about the sticky fingers (ironically as usually she revels in getting messy). They certainly were not as uniform as the first time I made them so a few needed cooking for a few minutes longer so make sure you keep as eye on the oven.
As always we would love to here if you tried out the recipe and if you have any suggestions for what we can try next!
