For something a bit different, over the weekend I got my kids to cook some biscuits that reindeer and boomers will like – we will make them again on Christmas Eve but we HAD to test them first of course!
Make your favourite biscuit dough
roll out the dough then cut into carrot shapes (I found a carrot cutter in a local homewares store but you could do it by hand…)
put carrots onto greased trays and into the fridge
after about 20 minutes, put tray in oven to cook (15 minutes at 180 is usually enough but check your recipe)
cool then remove from tray
make some green icing and cover the carrot tops
make some orange icing and put into an icing pipe (or a ziplock bag and cut the corner off)
zigzag the orange icing over the carrots
let the icing set then store in an airtight container (if they last that long – my kids have never eaten carrots so willingly!!!)
For icing I mixed 1/2 cup icing sugar with 2 teaspoons of water and 2 – 3 drops of food colour. Add a little more water if needed but make sure it is thick rather than runny.
