Cherry & Chocolate Chip Biscuits



Cherry & Chocolate Chip Biscuits

These yummy biscuits are so quick and easy to make! Why not get the kids in the kitchen cooking – these would be perfect to start with. AND they can then eat them after. I for sure know that kids once they are in the kitchen love baking! To be able to cook and bake is so important – go on – we owe it to them!

There are so many easy recipes on this site they can try – why not? You could even allocate one evening and tell the kids it’s up to them to cook for the family one night a week?

Have a go at these Cherry & Chocolate Chip Biscuits and let me know how you get on

Thanks Clare
