Cheese Daisies

Another vintage contribution from this month’s The Cookbook Guru book, these savoury biscuits were so simple to make and were delicious.  Taken from Margaret Fulton’s Cookbook, they are described as being perfect to be served with pre-dinner drinks and I think Mrs Fulton hit the nail on the head.  Made with a combination of cheddar…

Chocolate Chunk Biscuits

I’ve been casually attempting to find a good chewy chocolate chip biscuit recipe for the few years now.  Mr G loves a chewy biscuit filled with good sized bites of chocolate and so many of my recipes turn out with more crunch than is really desired.  Flicking through my The New Classics Cookbook by Donna…

Bacon, Cheese and Green Onion Buttermilk Biscuits

The idea of creating a savoury flavoured scone that I could portion up and freeze for early starts sounded great. I love something different for my breakfasts and tend to mix it up with toast, eggs, pancakes or cereal.  When I’m on the early shift at work it comes down to what is easily pre-prepared…

Ginger Thins

For me gingerbread and ginger flavored biscuits spell Christmas time. For the past 20 years I’ve religiously made at least one batch of my Swedish Pepakaka recipe for adoring family and friends. This year I thought I’d try a new recipe I found in one of my latest cookbooks; Under The Walnut Tree by Anna…

Barazek Sesame Pistachio Biscuits

I’m an unashamed fan of sesame seeds and am always on the lookout for interesting recipes that use them as a key ingredient.  Browsing through this month’s book for The Cookbook Guru, Saha, by Greg and Lucy Malouf, I saw these little treats and instantly wanted to give them a go.  Fortunately there is nothing…

Walnut Biscuits

Such beautiful buttery rich biscuits these are.   The walnuts take the edge of the sweetness, although not too much as these are still pretty sweet treats.  What you get is a lovely biscuit to have with a cup of coffee or tea or maybe even a port as part of an evening treat.  So…

Chocolate Lace Crisps

Happy Friday Everyone!  This is a little bonus post that is not from the Donna Hay Recipe Book which I’ve been focussed on of late.  Just something sweet to get you through the weekend. This recipe comes to us from my lovely sister again, the same one that shared the amazing gluten, wheat and dairy…

Chocolate Orange & Ginger Hedgehog gone awray…

I had intended to share with you a really cool version of the traditional hedgehog, but alas it was not meant to be.  Normally this would mean back to the drawing board, but cooking is as much about the lessons from failures, as it is from our successes so I thought it was only fair…

Chocolate Chunk & Peanut Butter Biscuits

You may have noticed there is a slight theme going on with my baking at the moment I think, but it’s a good one.  The results have been quite delicious and I’m having fun playing… that’s the important bit isn’t it?  So here is the latest incarnation of my chocolate chip biscuits as I go…

Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Bites

Well this recipe is impressive, to say the least.  When it was shared with me on Facebook and keenly pronounces NO FLOUR, NO OIL, NO WHITE SUGAR… and technically no dairy to boot…. well I’m intrigued, excited and a little nervous about what the outcome will be.  The verdict?  YUM….let me think about it some…

Kyrddpepparkakor (swedish gingerbread)

These treats have been a part of my Christmas long before I spent a year living in Sweden.  My Mum’s best friend Mary used to make them for us every year as children, when we would celebrate Lucia, piping our names onto hand sized hearts and turning them into Christmas decorations for the tree.  You…

Chocolate Chip and Hazelnut Biscuits

Earlier on the in the year we finally had to capitulate and buy ourselves a new refrigerator.  It had been long overdue but we kept putting it off not seeing anything we liked, and having a very small fridge space in our kitchen, not finding the right size.  So when we bit the bullet, we…
