Cooking With Your Toddler - Pudsey Bear Biscuits

Today is Children in Need day and all week at Pre-School Jack has been making biscuits with his friends and then selling them at the end of the day to raise money for this great cause.

We have also made some Pudsey biscuits at home, using a recipe from the Baking Mad website. They have recipes for Children in Need as well as some great Cupcake recipes. Also, if you use Allinsons Nature Friendly flour in your baking they will donate 20p to Children In Need for each bag purchased.

Pudsey Bear Cookies

225g Butter, softened
225g Caster Sugar
500g Plain Flour
4 Large Eggs
1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
1 tsp baking powder
1 - 2 tsp mixed spice (optional)

To decorate

Coloured mini chocolate beans (or coloured icing)
Black writing icing
While chocolate, melted

  • Cream the butter and sugar together until pale & fluffy
  • Add the eggs & vanilla
  • Sift the flour & baking powder together and add to the wet ingredients
  • Mix until well combined
  • Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour
  • Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C
  • Roll out the dough on a floured surface to approx 5mm thick and cut out Pudsey shapes - we used a Pudsey bear cutter that we had previously bought from Asda, you could use a bear or Gingerbread man cutter if you don't have Pudsey.
  • Bake in the oven for 10-12 minutes until golden. 
  • Allow to cool on a wire rack.
  • Decorate the biscuits with the writing icing, melted chocolate and coloured chocolate beans. (Jack got bored so I was left to decorate them on my own...boooo yaaay!)
