Face Biscuits #Fathers Day

Daddy Biscuits

face

All you need:

250g softened butter

140g castor sugar

1 egg yolk

vanilla essence

300g plain flour

icing sugar

sweeties (although for a healthy snack these can be substituted with fruit)

Method

1. Mix together the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon

2. Add the egg yolk and vanilla – beating lightly to combine

3. Sift the flour and stir into the mixture until well combined.

5. Roll out the mixture

cutting

6. Cut out the circles (good chance to get some maths and speech into the activity here, as you talk about the shape and count how many you can cut out of the mixture).

cooking

7. Put on a tray to cook. I use greaseproof paper to stop them sticking and making it easier to wash up. We cooked ours for about 15 minutes at 180 degrees in a fan oven – but really just until they look cooked (taste testing is always good idea once they’ve cooled a little).

8. It is never too soon to teach the importance of washing up as you go along.

cooling

9. Allow to cool.

sweets

10. Mix your icing sugar and put some sweets in a bowl.

11. Spread the icing sugar over the biscuits with a spoon.

(regular readers will see that our son had his cast off and this is his first activity without it. He is doing well).

12. Decorate with sweets arranged to look like their dad.

13. Allow to set and put away until Fathers’ Day.

14. Allow children to eat leftover sweets :O)

  2. Ant doesn’t much care for Father’s Day because he doesn’t like people to spend money on him so we always make him something using things we already have. This is a great idea and the girls will love making these!
