Class 13EG recently baked some Christmas biscuits during our food tech lessons. The main aim was to develop some of our key cooking skills. These included measuring, weighing, rubbing, kneading and cutting.
The students were asked to be responsible for their own work. This started by collecting the correct equipment in our own food tech learning station.
An instruction sheet was then followed. The students ticked off each activity once it was completed.
We prepared the biscuit mixture and then cut out some Christmas themed shapes for the biscuits. Washing up took place whilst our biscuits were baking.
It was then time for some fun with the decoration of the biscuits. The class members made an icing sugar mix. They chose which colour dye to add to the topping. This was spread on top of our biscuits. The final touch was to add some edible decorations.
