These very simple biscuits are a great introduction to baking with young children.  They are quick, easy and delicious.

Children learn to:

  • use scales
  • mix the ingredients
  • rub in the butter (a basic baking skill)
  • form a log of dough (fine motor skills)
  • use a ruler
  • cut through the dough vertically (fine motor skills)
  • make and fill wells in the biscuits (fine motor skills)
  • estimate distances when placing on the baking sheet

So many skills in one simple recipe!
