One of my favourite things to bake are these Christmas Tree Cookies, which I make for all my nieces and nephews at our family Christmas party. They’re yummy, fun and ever so easy to make. Here’s the recipe.
This really is a super yummy, very easy Christmas biscuit recipe. We make several batches each year, as they’re great for decorating the tree, giving as gifts… and eating yourself!

I love having a stash of simple recipes for kids on hand for when the children want to do some baking. This choc chip flapjack recipe is a really great one for kids to try. It’s quick and easy to make, uses ingredients you probably have to hand (or at least available the local store) and it lets children practise lots of practical kitchen and maths skills. Oh, and did I mention it’s yummy?

The BBC reported this week that homemade play dough can contain enough salt to poison children. It said no fatalities have been reported, but advised that children should be watched carefully when playing with any play dough. It didn’t offer any alternative recipes that contain little or no salt, and it didn’t say that play dough is an amazing sensory material that offers so much to children who have the opportunity to play with it.
Homemade play dough, used with thought, care and imagination, is perhaps the best childhood material there is, in my opinion. So, rather than feel scared that it might harm our children, and stop using it, let’s look at how amazing it is, and try a salt free play dough recipe.
