I baked :)
In my last post I mentioned and linked to the Condensed Milk biscuits right down at the bottom of the post. This was my first time making this recipe. It makes a dig batch of plain cookie dough.
I scooped out a portion added some vanilla and Smarties and made some fun Smartie cookies.
While they were baking I added some Orange rind and Coconut to another batch. Oh heres a little tip too, I keep some oranges in a plastic bag in the freezer and it makes it so much easier to finely grate the rind on a frozen piece of fruit ;)
I also added Spices, Sultanas and Raisins to another portion of dough, that is also when I discovered weevils in the walnuts but that's another story. Lastly I added some Vanilla and Choc chips to another portion. I rolled each portion in baking paper and popped them all in together, double bagged and into the freezer.
I made just over a dozen cookies today and estimate another 5 dozen ready to be cut in the freezer now!
The cookies are quite nice, not my usual type of recipe, sweeter and crunchier but the plain dough lends itself to such a wide variety of flavourings its a winner in my books.
I'm playing at getting back on top of my food management these days- its a money saving venture ;)
Had best go and sort out my pantry I am so hoping those weevils were confined to the one sealed container I found them in.
