Here are the Carob Hearts
Zoe already lickin' her chops in anticipation!
And here are the Yoghurt Teddies.
Gimme Gimme Gimme!!!!! Hand it over human!
2/3 cup Skim milk powder
1/3 cup Wheatgerm
1 and 1/3 cup Spelt flour (you can also use all purpose or wholemeal)
1 jar baby food puree (we used beef and vegetable casserole )
1 and 1/2 Tablespoons Duck fat (you can also use margarine or olive oil)
Put milk powder, wheatgerm and flour into a bowl. In another bowl put the wet ingredients together and beat them up a bit with a fork.
Put wet ingredients into dry. Combine with a spatula.
Tip out onto your work surface and bring together to a dough. Feel free to add extra flour (or a little water) to get it to the right consistency. Flour your work surface and rolling pin. Roll out to a 5-7mm thickness.
Cut out cookies using your favourite cookie cutters. Place onto baking trays lined with baking paper and bake in 180 degree C oven (350 F) for 20 min or so. We turned off the oven and left them in to get nice and crisp. Keep an eye out in case they get too brown.
Once cold - you can "decorate" them.
Melt about 2 tablespoons copha. Add in carob powder until it reaches icing consistency. Mum dipped a cookie in and used a second cookie to "dap", so that both had icing and it was not too thick. Decorate the cookies with chopped dried paw-paw for wow factor effect.
Melt unsweetened yoghurt buds/chips gently. (Source yoghurt buds from a Health Food shop). Paint onto cookie with pastry brush. Sprinkle with cake decorations ie. hundreds and thousands, sprinkles.
Great Baking/Cooking makes a Great Pawty!! We even got away with being naughty at the table!
