Our Recipe of the Month for May is our fabulous ‘Cheese and Tomato Moons’. These were a real hit with our little Foodies and we had great fun making cheese and cracker rockets while they were cooking to complete our space theme for the session! The best thing about this recipe is making your own pastry! We then filled our moons with tomato puree, cherry tomatoes and cheddar cheese. You could use any filling you like and you can use the pastry recipe to make all sorts of pies and pasties.
Our cheese and cracker rockets are a really fun way to get children trying different types of cheese – we used feta for the windows and Red Leicester, Edam and Gouda for the rocket nose and wings. It is also a good opportunity to talk about different shapes and even introduce mathematical language such as half and quarter to young children.
