The Class Continues.....

Cooking 101 continues and this past week it was appetizers.

The girls wanted to learn some party starters, that were easy and different. I knew that they probably have never worked with Phyllo Dough,so this would be a new experience. This would be a busy class with lots to do. We started off with these quiche puffs, a basic quiche poured into a Phyllo Dough crust. Just 12 minutes to bake...

Then they made some simple spinach triangles...


Some delicious pork-veggie pot stickers...



Pesto Gyro wedges, with homemade pesto...




And a creamy spinach-veggie dip placed into a scooped out boule.

They all enjoyed the apps, especially the pot stickers. It was nice to see them make and taste items they never thought they could make. Especially the fact that we used a lot of spinach.




Then for sweets they made some Brownie Bites,


Raspberry Crumb Squares, and Soft Chocolate Chippers.


Can you believe the four 5th graders made this in an hour and a half...
