The new media does not feed us fully formed chunks, but broken chips and blips of imagery. We are required to piece an identity together to create a configurative or modular personality. This explains why so many millions are desperately searching for an identity.

Kids Christmas Recipes

With the Festive season just around the corner you may be looking for some Kids Christmas Recipes, that you can cook for or with your kids.
There really is no better time than the festive season to get in the kitchen cooking with your kids. Christmas is steeped in traditions and flavors, like cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and of course lashings of hot chocolate.
Kids love to bake and enjoy nothing more than making gifts that family and friends can eat. Lebkuchen are Traditional German Christmas Cookies and my children love to decorate these with white icing and silver balls. Sugar Mice and Coconut Ice are ideal gift ideas.
We have another family favorite Christmas Recipe Chocolate Cherry Fudge.
Starry Mince Pies
Mince Pies are traditional at Christmas, this recipe will make approx 12 pies.
250g Plain Flour
150g Cold Butter, extra for greasing
Cold water to mix, allow between 1 to 1 1/2 tsp per 25g of flour
1/4 Level tsp Salt
350g Mincemeat
Beaten Egg for brushing
Sifted Icing Sugar
Pre-Heat your oven to 190c/375f/Gas Mark 5.
For the pastry:-
1. Sift the flour and the salt into a bowl.
2. Add the butter, cut into the flour with a knife then rub with your fingertips. When rubbed sufficiently, the mixture should look like fine breadcrumbs.
3. Sprinkle the water over the crumbs, mix to stiff crumbly-looking paste with round-ended knife.
4. Draw together with fingertips, turn out on to lightly floured board. Knead quickly until smooth and crack-free.
Building the Pies:-
1. Roll out the pastry on a floured surface,using an 8cm round cutter stamp out 12 circles.
2. Grease your muffin tin and line with your pastry circles.
3. Using a teaspoon put equal amounts of mincemeat into each pastry case.
4. With your remaining pastry using a small star cutter cut out your stars.
5. Place your stars in the center of the pie and brush with a little beaten egg.
6. Bake in the center of the oven for 20-25 minutes (or until golden brown)
7. Remove from the tins and dredge thickly with sifted icing sugar.
The mince pies can be served warm, with whipped cream or custard, you could also decorate with other festive shapes depending on your cookie cutters.
