Home made Monte Carlos

I wanted to bake myself a Mothers day cake but I did not want chocolate, every other suggestion met objection from one of the two children. So I turned to the biscuit section. I have had my New CWA cookbook out all week, there are so many things in it I want to bake and I love all the CWA guidelines, vintage advertisements & images throughout it!


I decided on Monte Carlos, This recipe made up a lot of biscuits


I didn't make the filling quite to the specifications and it is a little too sweet for my taste, but they are still good and edible. ;) They look a little yellow in this last image due to the instagram filter I used on my phone.


The book is called "Jam Drops and marble cake" 60 years of CWA award winning recipes. I picked mine up for a really good price in Target but I have seen it on the shelves in book stores. I advise you shop around to get the best price as it does vary quite a lot :)

  2. Hi Tammy, I was looking at that book at Big W too. Now that you have given it a bit of a review I think it will definitely be a must have.
    And your Monte Carlos look really yummy too.
