Salt dough recipe - not for eating!

We made some salt dough decorations for the Christmas tree competition.
You must not eat this.

You will need:

A large bowl
A rolling pin
A baking tray
Some cutters
2 cups of plain flour
1 cup of table salt
1 cup of warm water

Put all the ingredients into the bowl.
Mix it with your hands.
Squeeze it all into a ball and make it smooth so there are no cracks.
Roll out the dough evenly so it is about 1cm thick.
Use the cutters to make your shapes.
Place the shapes on a tray and leave to dry in a warm place until they have gone hard. Or ask a grown-up to dry them in the oven for you.
You can paint your shapes when they are dry if you like.

Gruffalo Crumble

The children in reception tried to find a Gruffalo for this recipe, but there were none around so we had to use apples instead!


Remember ALWAYS WASH YOUR HANDS BEFORE YOU COOK
                   KNIVES ARE VERY SHARP
                    NEVER MESS ABOUT IN THE KITCHEN
                   ALWAYS HELP WITH THE WASHING UP
                   ASK A GROWN UP TO HELP YOU
                 

Ingredients

4 large cooking apples (peeled, cored and chopped)
6 ounces of plain flour
3 ounces of sugar
3 ounces of margarine

Put the chopped apple in your crumble dish.

To make the crumble put the flour and margarine in a big bowl. Use yoru fingertips to rub them together until it looks like small crumbly lumps.
Next stir in the sugar.
Now pour the topping over the apple chunks.
Get a grown up to help you use the oven.
Bake for 20-30 minutes at 180 degrees until golden brown.

This will be very hot so please take care.
