WHAT'S COOKING?
















If you're looking for something to do with the kids in the lead-up to Christmas here's an easy idea.

Buy a packet of Sweet Short Pastry sheets from the supermarket - any brand.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.

Dig out your cookie cutters (find the kids old playdough cutters or use or a glass). Cut the patry into shapes.

Sprinkle with grated chocolate or sprinkles or sugar (brown or castor sugar).

Bake for 10 minutes.

Easy peasy. 2 sheets of pastry makes zillions. They taste and look just like shortbread with abolutely no hassle.

Elliot (6) made these this morning.

Well done Mel and Elliot, thanks for the tip, we usually use belgium mix and it is not so great to roll out. So this will be a go-er in my house!
