holiday1With the school holidays here boredom is sure to be on the horizon sooner or later. Allowing kids to experience in the kitchen might just be the perfect way to kill time… Being with my siblings for the past week has brought this holiday series on, so every school holiday that will come up ill be posting a holiday post which will consist of at least one or two recipes that kids can have fun making or simply eating!

So lets start with the orange cinnamon biscuits. The dough recipe is basic with the juice of an orange and cinnamon. With these biscuits I noticed that the flavour really deepens and settles well on the second day, but which kid will wait!IMG_3986The simple process
