Roman Cookies

Our 9 year old son has recently been set some homework from his school which he had to choose a subject about the Romans. All his friends were doing sports and leisure so we said why don’t you do about Roman feasts and we’ll find a recipe to make so he could take it in. We didn’t realise how tricky it would be as we don’t have the ability to roast a wild boar or make ostrich ragout, we are in short supply of both wild boar and ostrich in the North of England. Luckily we did a Google search and came across this fantastic little recipe courtesy of EatingPlaces (a blog here on WordPress, click for the recipe).

We went out and bought the few ingredients needed to make these tasty little treats and set to it. It only takes about 1.5 hours and an hour of that is to let the dough set in the fridge.

They have turned out really well, and they are delicious. I’m sure they’ll be a big hit with his class and more importantly his teachers.

So thanks for posting the great recipe EatingPlaces. Here are a few pics of our finished cookies.
