On your marks,
Get set,
Go!
 
With the 2012 London Olympics just around the corner don't run around in circles wondering what healthy snacks you can make your little ones, we have a tasty recipe just for you.
 
Celebrate your little one's achievements by giving them a sugar free, medal biscuit! Older children will love to help you make these scrummy biscuits by making the dough, cutting out the shapes and decorating the biscuits with ribbons and cream cheese!
 
  • 150g self raising flour
  • 50g unsalted butter
  • ½ tsp ground ginger
  • generous splash of apple or grape juice
 
Makes roughly 6-8 biscuits
 
  1. Heat the oven to 180C, 160C fan or gas mark 4.
  2. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl, with your hands, until you have fine breadcrumbs
  3. Add the juice gradually, kneading it into the breadcrumbs until you get a moist but firm dough
  4. Roll out the dough onto a floured surface (remembering to flour the rolling pin too), to about a ¼ inch thickness.
  5. Cut out circles and places them onto a lined or greased baking tray
  6. If you are wanting to decorate some with ribbon make a hole about half an inch from the top of the biscuit
  7. At this point you can chose to decorate some with raisins or other dried fruit by pressing them gently into the dough
  8. Place them into the oven and bake for about 20 minutes or until golden.
  9. When they are baked place onto a cooling rack and leave to cool
  10. Once cooled decorate with cream cheese and ribbons!
 
Warning – please be aware when giving young children tied ribbons.
