Cookery – 27 January 2022
Another two weeks of bashing biscuits! Last week, we made scrumptious Biscoff bars. Crushing of biscuits and a little bit of whisking in sugar, Biscoff spread and butter then smothering the lot with chocolate – divine! Week two - what a calamity! We were only making lemon cheesecakes but what a disaster! The tin opener broke so we thought we were doomed but two school superheroes descended into the classroom when they heard Mrs Rusby wailing for a tin opener; tins opened super quick but by then the cream cheese had been whisked to death! Hopefully the sloppy messes that left the classroom set in the fridge! Fabulous photos of Biscoff bars but alas no time prevailed for the lemon cheesecakes! More fun next week!
Cookery Club – 2 Dec
Well the penultimate week had lots of crushing of ginger nuts; do you realise how stubborn ginger nut biscuits can be when you are trying to crush them! Once crushed to within an inch of their lives, butter was generously poured in and made a delicious base. For the topping to our Key Lime Pie, we mixed, grated and whisked. Our final products could have been sold in M&S!
The final week reminded me of the saying, ‘never work with children and animals’; I’ve changed it – ‘never work with chocolate!’ Salted pretzels were crushed this time, mixed with sugar and coated in butter for a divine base. Chocolate was melted and then mixed with cream cheese, cream and cocoa powder to make a Salted Pretzel, Chocolate Cream Pie. Then decorated with some swirls (!) of whipped cream. Fingers crossed that it tasted delicious.
