Meet StEGGosouras - The 9 year old had an egg decorating competition at school this week...
And little miss had oodles of fun decorating her Easter Bonnet - Less most definatley is not more....
I have also baked Easter Cookies with the 9 year old. It was lovely to spend the one on one time with him, so rare nowadays. He spends so much time with his dad cycling at the weekend, it feels as if it is boys together, girls together at our house. Does anyone else find this? Anyway, I digress....
Golden Syrup Cookies
75gm Soft Light Brown Sugar
2 tbs Golden Syrup
175gm SR Flour
100gm Chocolate (I used Eggs - Crushed & I like Smartie Eggs as they keep their bright colour)
Form into small sized drops
Make between 12 & 18 depending on your preffered size
Wait patiently as they bake for 8-10 minutes at 160c (fan oven)
Enough for the smalls & us girls at work....
The Easter banner was inspired by the Emma Bridgewater card that came through the post.
G kindly (after some pouting - from me) photocopied & enlarged the postcard. I then happily sat and cut out chickens & eggs, and threaded them onto ribbon.
Only trouble is G thinks that you cannot tell them apart clearly enough...
I can though, probably because I spend more time at the kitchen sink...
