Moon cakes are traditionally eaten on Chinese New Year. This is because the Chinese New Year is based on the lunar calendar....and these little treats look like moons!.
Mrs Rushbrooke helped us make the dough, and then we were each given a portion.We had to make a circular shape, and then gently push our thumb into the dough to make a 'dip' in the middle. We then filled the dip with strawberry jam.
We were quite impressed at how much the dough grew in the oven....more than double their original size!
They filled the classroom with a rather yummy smell, and we think they look just as good too!
Thank you to both Mrs Rushbrooke and Alex for helping us cook today!
