Welcome to No.1's cooking lesson. Step 1, If you look above you will see the recipe for our awesome ginger bread men. So sorry if you can't read it-not my writing, must be Mummy's!!!! Step 2, Now get your bowls and whisks out and cream the sugar and flour together.
I had to clean up before I could roll the dough out! I used so many dishes so it took forever. Well, maybe I'm exaggerating a little but it seemed like forever. I got so floury that the washing will take ages to do. I had to scrub the sugar from the measuring cup as all of the sugar was stuck to the bottom!
Finally I could do the dough needing. It was rather hard and it kept on crumbling and falling apart. I put more flour down but that didn't help at all, all the flour did was making it worse. What did we do wrong? Did I forget to put something in, no. Do you know? It's in the recipe.
I reread the recipe and it said to put it in the fridge for half an hour. I did that and while I was waiting I was getting out the cutters and rolling pin. After that I was just jumping around and not being helpful.
It was so fun when I got to cut the shapes out. Mummy had to take the cut shapes off the bench because I kept ripping the heads off the men. My little sisters wanted to help me but I'm glad I said no.
Look at the finished product! I couldn't wait to eat them but they were boiling hot. I had a little accident when I was taking them over to the bench and I accidentally dropped one.
My little sisters pleaded with me to help do the icing. They actually did a pretty good job with them. They had turned out better than I expected. No.2 and I made biscuits for each other which was pretty special. We also made biscuits for Nana and Papa which they enjoyed.
