Baking with the kids

I let Miss 4 & Miss 6 loose with my biscuit book and said we will make what ever they choose. They decided on these tasty little morsels, which to my surprise were actually a healthier choice than others. The thing that they liked was they were decorated with those edible silver balls.
We also had lots of fun.

Citrus Sunflower Biscuits
125 g chopped butter
2 tsp grated lemon rind
2 tsp grated orange rind
3/4 cup caster sugar
1 egg

Drop tbl of mixture onto tray, flatten slightly with fork. top with silver balls.
Bake in moderate oven for 20 min or till brown.
