Further updates on our ANZAC Biscuit Technology Unit.
We looked at all the ingredients. We felt their texture, smelled them and also if we wanted to had a taste.
We read through our recipes again out loud. Next we all had turns at measuring out the basic ingredients for the biscuits.
Flour, Sugar, Baking Soda, Rolled Oats, Golden Syrup, Butter, Coconut, Boiling Water (we had to be very careful with this!)
We used different measuring tools: scales, cups, tablespoons and teaspoons. We tried to make our measurements exact……
We made one biscuit plain and then we each chose one of our special ingredients to make an ANZAC biscuit which lots of people would like to buy.
Some people added raisins.. Some people added marshmellows..Some people added chocolate pieces.
We can’t wait to try them and see which is yummier!
Mrs de Koning cut us each a piece of Baking Paper to write our name on.
Then we got two different spoonfuls of dough. We rolled them in our clean hands and pressed them into slightly flattened circles.
We put them into the oven at 180 degrees Celsius. They stayed there until they were golden brown.
Mrs de Koning took them out of the oven for us because the home time bell had rung.
Mrs de Koning put out cooled biscuits into an airtight container. And she brought them to school on Monday for us to taste.
