Welsh cakes

I had my niece and nephews for a few hours one afternoon and my niece, as she often does, asked if we could bake something. I told her I had a recipe we could do: Welsh cakes. She didn’t know what they were. I didn’t know what they were. So I asked her to read…

Norman’s farthing biscuits

Before you ask, I don’t know who Norman is. Also I’d like to draw your attention to the “h” within the word “farthing.” Please don’t mistake these biscuits for something that they’re not. That would be a truly terrible name for a biscuit. I had measured out the dry ingredients for this particular bake probably…

Oat and honey flapjack cookies

Hello readers. You may wonder where on earth I’ve been. Or you may be like “Ugh, her again?” If the former, thank you for your concern. If the latter, just unfollow me. The simple answer is I’ve been pretty much where I’ve always been. The complicated answer is I moved, so my kitchen was packed…

Marbled mocha cheesecake

If you’ve been keeping track like an avid fan (or a stalker), you’ll know that in my last round of one-recipe-per-category, I skipped puddings and desserts. So I needed to double-up. The last one I made was shared with two people, but I’ve had my eye on this cheesecake recipe for a while. Especially after…

Peanut butter sandwiches

Hello friends. Actually, “friends” is a little presumptuous. You may be a friend, but you may be a stranger on the internet and stranger danger is real. Hello readers. I was flipping through the biscuits and traybakes section of my book and spotted this little gem. Peanut butter cookies sandwiched with jam. Sounds great! And…

Double chocolate crunch cookies

Another day, another bake. Time to start at the very beginning. (I hear it’s a very good place to start.) Back to biscuits and traybakes! I went through and couldn’t decide which to do. I thought about being selfish again (like I was with the cheese, ham and chive tart) by making some crackers that…

Paul’s savoury biscuits

I couldn’t decide what to bake tonight. I had plans to make a tropical tart or some kind of custard apricot creation, but then I realized most of my co-workers aren’t in the office and most of the tart would go untouched. (Or I’d eat too much of it.) Then I thought about making cake,…

Digestives

Kind of an odd thing to call a biscuit, no? I think of “digestives” and I think of the cookies your mom used to buy you when you weren’t feeling well. Or maybe I’m getting them confused with saltines. But digestives were never the “treat” cookie. Digestives were a very poor man’s chocolate chip cookie….
