Adventures in baking

We try to bake or make something to eat at least once a week and this month the main ingredient has been pumpkin.

We've made mini pumpkin pies,
and today we made pumpkin biscuits

We had fun using an old fashion beater to whip our pumpkin pie mix.

It was hard to turn and we found the whisk a lot easier.

The tarts were filled and ready to bake.
Making the biscuits included the children each having a turn using the flour sifter.

The rolling out and cutting was sticky.

But we worked together and got them ready to bake.
