3 teaspoons baking powder
50g (2oz) soft margarine
50g (2oz) sultanas or raisins
50ml (2fl oz) water mixed with 50ml (2fl oz) semi-skimmed milk
1 egg, beaten with a fork
Now ask the adult to help you find these pieces of equipment in the kitchen.
oven set to 220ºC, 425ºF (Gas Mark 7)
set of scales
large metal spoon
gingerbread cutters and any other pastry cutters you have
Take care! Needs adult help.
Ask an adult to pre-heat the oven while you sieve the flour and baking powder together over a mixing bowl.
Use your large metal spoon to help you squash any lumps and push the powder through the holes of the sieve.
Add the margarine then rub it into the flour and baking powder using your fingertips and thumbs so it looks like little breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sultanas.
Then push the mixture out to the sides to make a well in the middle of your bowl.
Slowly pour in the milk and water.
Use your hands to knead the mixture into a soft dough.
If it is too sticky, add a little more flour.
Sprinkle some flour on to a clean board then roll out the dough.
Roll it into a circle that is about 2cm thick.
Put the gingerbread man and woman cutters on the dough sharp side down.
Press them down to cut out the shapes.
Then roll out the left-over dough to cut out a boy and girl with your smaller cutters.
Gather up any left-over dough.
Knead it and roll it out again.
Use your other pastry cutters to make some more shapes.
Rub a little margarine on to your baking tray to grease it.
Lay your scone people on the tray and brush a little beaten egg on each one.
Make some eyes and a mouth from sultanas.
Ask an adult to put the scones in the oven for you.
After 15 minutes, ask them to take them out.
Leave them to cool then eat them!
