Here is a snack that is perfect for getting little ones involved in the kitchen!! They will
have just as much fun making them as eating them. The perfect treat to cheer up the
dreary days of winter!
I recently made these in my Bebe Chefs class, and they were a huge hit! Bebe B and I
also made them a few weeks ago and they were so much fun. We both managed to gobble
up an entire snowman. I used yogurt cheese on mine but dairy-free cream cheese
substitute would work as well. Most importantly, have fun!
Cinnamon Snowman Biscuits - 12 Months+
1 1/2 cup flour (plus extra for dusting)
1/2 teaspoons organic sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 1/2 tablespoons cold butter, cut into small chunks
½ cup + 2 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon honey (raw if available)
1 cup cheddar (shredded)
Ideas For Decorating:
Cream Cheese or Yogurt Cheese
Preheat the oven to 425°F. Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon into a medium bowl. If using a sifter you may need to push organic sugar through as it is a bit courser. Next add the butter and use your fingers (if you have a pastry cutter you can use that too) to work butter into the flour until you have a course meal, with pieces no larger then pea size. Stir in most of the milk (reserving about 1 tbsp), honey and cheese, just until mixed. Knead dough briefly on a lightly floured surface, just until it holds together. Coat a rolling pin with flour and roll out the dough to about 1/3 inch thick. Cut little biscuits out with any cookie cutters you like (we use a snowman). Place biscuits on un-greased baking sheets. Brush the tops of biscuits with remaining milk and bake until biscuits are golden, 10 minutes. Some fun options for serving include decorating them (ingredient ideas above), serving them with peanut butter or honey butter!
