Gluten Free Ginger Biscuits Recipe, baking with the toddler.

Baking and cooking with my toddler is a very regular occurrence, it’s one activity that I find teaches her lots, keeps us both amused and we get to eat the results.

So here is out latest recipe, in the final stages of pregnancy I had a bit of morning sickness creeping back in, so these ginger biscuits were a cunning ploy to help me get through the day. They have a great texture, in fact you won’t know they are gluten free and they last week in the biscuit tin.

 

Ginger Biscuits: gluten free, toddler friendly or great with a cuppa.

I’ve had a yearning to make ginger biscuits for a while and today I finally kicked myself into action and did it. My little toddler helper was very pleased to be cooking as we’ve been reading all about Maisy making Gingerbread the past few days, so making Ginger biscuits was the same in her eyes 😉

Recipe:

40g muscovado  sugar

50g rice flour

50g cornmeal/ fine polenta

2 tsp ground ginger

1tsp xanthum gum

50g margarine

2 tbsp milk

Mix all the dried ingredients together, then rub in the margarine until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the milk a little at a time and mix to a dough (you may not need it all).

Roll out and cut into whatever shapes you like……ours had to be teddy bears and were cut by my helper.

Cook at Gas Mark 3/160C for 15 minutes. Leave to cool on a rack and enjoy.
