Over the summer holidays my daughter wanted to bake some biscuits. She’s going through a massive Sylvanian Families obsession at the moment. Our house looks like a toy shop as her playsets cover the floor.
For some reason I used a packet mix I picked up at Waitrose. It was one I hadn’t tried before but only needed an egg white so was easy to make with my daughter – I’ve forgotten the name but I’ll add it if I remember.
She made the gingerbread dough, we chilled it briefly, before rolling it out. Ages ago she received a plastic Sylvanian Families stencil and we used this to cut the biscuits out.
It was a little tricky and the dough was very crumbly but cut out about 6 bunnies and bears, as well as some flowers.
We baked them in the oven according to the instructions and left them to cool. My 5 year old loves icing pens so decorated them with simple icing.
The biscuits tasted delicious but were crumbly so I’m not sure I would buy the mix again. There were so many biscuits that they lasted for a few days in an air tight container.
What do you think? Have you ever baked any themed snacks with your children? If so, I would love to hear them.
