Not to be outdone, we baked our own this morning.
I read about eight recipes on the computer and then combined them to make our own.
They were probably the easiest thing we have ever baked.
Great for baking with your kids.
Here is the recipe;
Cream 185 grams of butter and 1/3 cup icing sugar.
Add 1 and a 1/2 cups of plain flour and 1/3 cup custard powder to the mixer and mix well.
Make them into balls and then slightly flatten them using the back of a fork.
Bake in a moderate oven on baking paper for about fifteen minutes.
For the filling combine 1/2 cup icing sugar, 2 tablespoons butter, 2 teaspoons custard powder and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla.
When they are cool and you are ready to eat them put some filling on one biscuit and squash another one on top. Apparently they go soggy if you join them and leave them for a while. I don't think that is going to be a problem here though.
Before I go here's a washer I made last night.
This one is called The Bushy Stitch Dishcloth and the pattern is here.
It is probably the easiest washer I have made to date as it only has two lines of pattern.
I love the edging and the feel of it is lovely.
