Biscuits, Cookies

Recipes for some lovely biscuits and cookies, which are usually very quick and easy to make.

Oatie Biscuits

I thought I would try to come up with a little concoction, very simple, but hopefully quite tasty.  Just some flour, butter, sugar and oats, to make some biscuits, similar to hob nobs. Some spare glace moreno cherries, quartered and popped in the middle of each biscuit should give an extra hit of flavour during […]

Chocolate Lime Macaroons

Yesterday I started the Christmas cake making process.  But it will be another two weeks before it is ready. The cake is made and has been fed with brandy.  Now it is resting in and airtight container.  I will post about the cake when it has been finished with marzipan and icing.  In the meantime […]

Fruit Shortcake Biscuits

Fruit Shortcake biscuits are a childhood favourite biscuit, made with a short pastry and currants.  The recipe I used to make these is actually referred to on Good To Know as squashed fly biscuits, from a recipe by Rachel Allen.     This is another easy to make recipe, and the results are very tasty indeed. […]

My Hob Nobs

Hob Nob biscuits are actually a proprietary brand, but I have made a similar type of biscuit, just trying out a basic biscuit recipe with some rolled oats in it. They have turned out rather well, with a lovely sweet aroma, as they cooked. They have a nice, brittle crunch to then, and have just […]

Custard Kisses

Now doesn’t that seem a silly name for a recipe?  I found the recipe on BBC Good Food and, when I read it, thought that they sounded quite interesting. The bake is a sort of shortbread, very light and crumbly, and the filling is a butter cream type with some custard powder to add some flavour. […]

Chocolate Chip Cookies

A nice, simple recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookies today, which I found on BBC Good Food . The recipe says it makes 30, but I only got 20.  That is clearly because I used rather heaped teaspoons of the mixture.  But they turned out very well indeed.   I couldn’t resist eating one even before they […]

Coconut Macaroons

Coconut Macaroons are a favourite memory from childhood, though I cannot claim to have feasted upon them with any regularity.  I do recall eating them though, a lovely coconut flavour and quite moist. I looked at lots of recipes to try to decide just how to do them, and in the end I decided to […]

Millionaire’s Shortbread

This recipe is strictly for those with a sweet tooth, or two.  Any shortbread is nice but add a thick layer of caramel and then another, of chocolate, and you have a rich, sweet variant.  It is the sort of thing that you don’t want a large portion of, or you will feel decidedly sick […]
