Sophie's Recount Writing

On ANZAC day for lunch I had scones. I made the scones with my mum. The dough felt like gooe. When I felt the dough it got stuck to my fingers and my nails . When I ate my scones they tasted fantasic . I tried one with butter and strawberry jam. When it was the afternoon me and my mum made chocolate chip cookies and me and my brother mac ate lots of chocolate chip cookies. On sunday we had scones for lunch again and some more chocolate chip cookies and they were fantastic and yummy.
