One thing I have always done with the girls is bake . It’s so easy to do with them and if you set everything up before hand - it’s even better! :)

We’ve been making biscuits this afternoon and Nila has shown such an interest in baking and cooking with me . It is definitely something she really enjoys doing .

So my easy peasy biscuit recipe is super simple and they taste so yummy.


200G plain flour
100g butter
50g sugar
3 tablespoons of gingerbread syrup , or honey -I like to do this so there isn’t as much refined sugar in them , plus it makes them taste delicious! :)
2 tablespoons cinnamon - optional
1 egg


mix your butter , egg and sugar until it is nice and fluffy. We used the hand whisk for this . We haven’t got a fancy mixer , and that is ok :) it can all be done just as good by hand.

Add in your syrup and cinnamon - we went for cinnamon for some festive biscuits this time :)

Slowly add in your flour , mixing as you go until you get a nice biscuit dough . Add a little more flour if it’s still a little sticky.

Roll it out onto a light flour dusted surface and get the cutters out :)

Bake on gas mark 2 / 150c for 25 minutes or until golden brown . Then enjoy :)
