On the weekend Talia baked some biscuits but she didn't cream the butter and sugar first and they turned out a right royal mess. Yesterday Anna tweeted about her choc chip cookies. Then today I found this recipe I can't remember how but it appeared on my screen and I decided that all the stars were aligning and I had to make biscuits.
The only problem was that these ones called for toffee bits. We don't have those here. I tweeted with Katrina from Windsor Deli and she suggested that I use peanut brittle - great idea but I had already left to get the ingredients.
Fortunately I didn't know that until after I had added them to my recipe. Even better the recipe only calls for half a cup so that leaves plenty left over.
I highly recommend this recipe - simple to whip up - you should have the ingredients in your cupboard minus the caramel or toffee or whatever bits you want to add.
I substituted flaked almonds ( and I didn't bother toasting them first ) and I used the caramel bits, Uncle Tobys instant oats and SR flour rather than plain with baking powder and mine worked perfectly.
Yummy - crunchy on the outside and soft in the middle. I also made a pan of James' Cinnamon scrolls. After not baking for some time the girls will think they have come home to the wrong house this afternoon.
Have you been baking during this cooler weather?? Im trying to be good and stick to my whole food style of eating but every now and then you just have to break out and today was one of those days.
