Today Lizzie has decided that its her turn to share a recipe. So…..Lizzie it’s over to you!
My Daddy loves biscuits, I love my Daddy so…. I decided to bake some biscuits for him. In order for my Mummy to not feel left out I decided to let her help.
First things first I washed my teeny tiny hands. I then got my mummy to preheat the oven to 200c – Mummy is always telling me that the oven is hot and that I mustn’t touch it. Goodness me some of my toys are way more dangerous (have you ever dealt with stacky cups?) but I’ve learnt parents need humouring.
Then it was time to put on my apron and get out the ingredients I required. I fetched the flour, the sugar, an egg, the vanilla essence, the butter and the cornflour. It’s quite a long walk from our pantry to the worktop but I made it and even kept the egg in one piece.
It was touch and go as mummy tried to take it off me before I got to the worktop but I was having none of this and said ‘no’ very firmly.
I got Mummy to help me with the weighing out bit…….
125grams of butter
70grams of sugar
A dash of vanilla extract
One egg yolk (we made pink almond meringues with the egg white)
130grams of plain flour
20grams of corn flour
I tried a bit it was YUMMY. Truth be told I could have eaten the whole bowl but boring Mummy said no. I then added the vanilla essence and the egg yolk and mixed again.
