The boys have continued to look at instructions this week and in preparation for writing their own set of instructions they made mince pies for Christmas – no they didn’t last that long!
First two boys took turns to weighing the butter and flour and then everyone had a go at rubbing the fat and flour together, yes they all had sticky greasy hands which caused a lot of groaning! Then the sugar was weighed and added with a pinch of salt and kneaded into pastry. They each made a small pastry ball and pressed it in to a section of the cake tins. Then they added the mincemeat and took it to the oven to be cooked. The afternoon was full of anticipation and then excitement as their mince pies arrived. They could hardly wait to tuck in.
Well done boys they looked delicious.
