Another successful week at cooking classes with the exciting news of finally baking some rainbow smarties cookies! We began with sieving our plain flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into our mixing bowls and then adding our next ingredients of butter into the mix. Once we had combined our ingredients we creamed together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy. We then worked as a team to crack, add in and beat the egg into our mixing bowls and added in a dash of vanilla extract. After gradually beating in the egg and sifting in the dry ingredients to form a stiff dough, we then added in our final and most important ingredient – smarties. Last but not least of today’s cooking class methods we rolled out our dough using rollings pins and finally divided our mixtures into individual shapes before placing on our baking trays. As our well made cookies rose proudly in the oven we chatted amongst ourselves waiting patiently to have a taste! Just as we’d hoped our freshly baked smarties cookies looked and tasted great. Our skills are improving each week – well done everyone!
