This is an ideal recipe to cook with smaller children. It's a take on fork biscuits from the brilliant Ballymaloe Bible. The key is there are only 4 ingredients to prep so if the children want to cook NOW, you can be ready to do so in a couple of minutes, before they've lost interest!
You can weigh out the ingredients and get them to tip it all into a Magimix. Then they can help roll the mixture into small balls and press them down lightly with a fork.
