This afternoon the children in reception from Burston and Tivetshall worked together to bake some cookies.
They are very easy to make and taste scrummy!


4oz marge
4oz sugar
2 dessert spoons of golden syrup
1 level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
8 oz self raising flour
1 teaspoon ground mixed spice

Measure the marge, sugar, golden syrup and bicarbonate of soda straight into a large saucepan.
Ask a grown up to help you melt this over a low heat on the cooker until all the ingredients have melted together and look smooth. Do not let the mixture boil.
Remove from the heat and allow to cool for a few minutes.
Measure out the flour and mixed spice.
Tip the flour and spice into the saucepan and mix really well with a metal spoon.
Take a small amount of the mixture (about a teaspoonful) and gently roll it in your hands to make a ball.
Place the balls of mixture onto some lined baking trays and space them well apart as they spread out when they cook.
Cook for about 12-15 minutes at 160 degrees.
Remove from the tray but leave on the foil on a cooling rack until they are cold.
Now you can eat them!

Don't forget to wash up!

You were all very well behaved this afternoon. I look forward to cooking with you again.
