Chocolate Shortbread with Salter Cook – Cooking with Kids






I am passionate about getting kids in the kitchen and getting them cooking, and anything that makes that easier and simpler is great by me. So when Salter asked us to take a look at their revolutionary Salter Cook range, which includes the Salter Cook 10kg Pro Bluetooth Kitchen Scale and the Salter Cook Bluetooth Cooking Thermometer that links to their cooking app, we decided to adapt one of the recipes we found on the app and make chocolate shortbread.

Using the Salter Cook App with Kids to bake Chocolate Shortbread
Initially, you need to download the free Salter Cook app, which is available for iOS or Android devices. The app comes preloaded with a range of both sweet and savoury recipes which is fab as according to research by Salter, a third of mums think it is important that their children experience a wide variety of food but struggle to make this happen. 

You can also import your own recipe from external websites (so you could add our chocolate shortbread recipe to your app)! Did you know that 43% of mums resort to convenience foods every week because they’ve run out of meal time inspiration, using an app like this is a great way to collate recipes that have worked well for your family.
Another brilliant feature is that you can personalise the recipes and change the quantity or serving size, so if you don’t want 20 shortbread then you can alter the quantity and the app will adapt the instructions and ingredients accordingly.  The recipes are so simple and easy to follow, and once you have weighed an item you can cross it out by clicking on it.

Whilst Maxi was weighing his ingredients I could watch from the other side of the kitchen and see what he was up to on my iPad. As per the recipe, you cream together the butter and sugar before adding the flour and cocoa powder.  Then you need to pop the dough in to cling film and rest in the fridge for 20 minutes.

When you get to a part in the recipe that needs to be timed, the interactive app allows you to click on it and it will set the timer.  With shortbread for example, you have to rest it in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Once your shortbread has rested roll it out to 1cm thick and then cut out.  You can either stamp like Mini did or you can just prick with a fork.

When it comes to the cooking time, you just have to touch the time listed in the recipe and it sets the timer ready for you to start.  Then you can pop your shortbreads in the oven to bake and start the countdown.

We were really impressed that the shortbread was perfectly cooked when the timer went off, there was no need to put them in any longer.  Using both the thermometer and the app took out all of the guesswork and ensured that our shortbread was just perfect.
