Last week we were joined by J from the Free From Farmhouse who made some delicious looking Cinnamon Rolls. I was so tempted by them that I went and made some myself, I didn't even wait for the kids to come home from school, naughty mummy!
This is the last week of the month but you still have plenty of time to join in. Come and share what you have been doing with your kids in the kitchen. All posts are pinned onto my Pinterest Board which is a great place to go for inspiration, and I will tweet them and give you a mention here the following week. I've also started to 1+ the posts on Google plus which I am trying to use more.

Boo wanted to make these because she had seen them in a cookery book. When she's not watching Masterchef or the Great British Bake Off re-runs, she's looking through my cookery books! So I said she could make them but she had to do it all herself.
We came across a little problem straight away because the recipe was for making two batches of macaroons in two different colours, but we only wanted to make one. So she had to do some maths to work out the recipe. It's a little different to my previous recipe but I think it worked a lot better, the mixture was thicker and the final macaroons much more crunchier.

Put the egg whites and caster sugar into a mixer and whisk until thick and foamy and stands in soft peaks.
whisk in the food colouring
mix the ground almonds and sifted icing sugar together
Add half of almonds and icing sugar to egg mixture and continue whisking
Add the rest of the almond mixture and continue whisking until stiff.
Put the mixture into a piping bag with a 2cm plain nozzle
Cover two baking trays with baking paper
pipe on mixture in 5cm circles leaving plenty of space between them.
Leave to settle for about 15 mins
Bake at 170C/gas mark 3 for 12 to 15 minutes
When cooled remove from tray and sandwich with the cream.
So now it's over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you've cooked,
I'd also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
