Living Arrows | Baking with Lily

Welcome back to Living Arrows, a post which celebrates childhood. I intend on creating as many of these weekly photos as possible because they are great to reflect on all together.

The project originally took its name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran ~
"You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth"

After last posts' moan about never-ending lurgys I would love to say that we are all fine and healthy now, but now we are past the stomach bug we are on to having colds. Plus Freyja is teething (does it ever end?) so she has a runny nose, cold or no cold.
But it hasn't stopped us getting out and about and it certainly hasn't stopped Lily from helping me make a blackberry and apple crumble. We picked so many blackberries the last time we were at the PYO farm that I froze bags full of berries, ready for such baking.
Rather than getting her fingers mucky with flour and butter, Lily used the pastry cutter which the children got me for my recent birthday. I saw Ree Drummond (Pioneer Woman) using one and I though aside from using a food processer which I don't own, a pastry cutter could make crumbles even easier. No more rubbing fat into flour using your fingers. This could be a game-changer for me, since Freyja loves to interrupt me at the worst possible times!

Lily standing at the kitchen counter, using a metal pastry cutter to make a crumble topping using flour, oats, butter and sugar.

Thanks for stopping by!

  9. This will cause refrigerated cookies to cook a little slower and thus spread out more. baking paper
