Cinnamon Squares are really very much delicious and tasty in taste with a nice aroma of cinnamon you can feel in every bite. Cinnamon Squares can be made with butter, caster sugar, flour, cinnamon powder, eggs, salt and chopped nuts.
A fairly simple recipe for gingerbread, that's fun to make and fun to serve/eat. We made people and Christmas trees! But you could make any shape, depending on availability of cutter or your artistic capabilities!
I love a crunchy biscuit with a Christmas time cuppa, and lots of home made biscuit recipes end up a bit soft. This one gives a proper crunchy biscuit! With the extra sparkle of the sprinkled sugar and the end. Perfect for after dinner coffee or tea! You can make the dough early, ready to bake with kids or anyone who needs a lttle christmas job!
Traditional Dorsetshire biscuit, size of a golf ball, high temperature start, then long low bake to crisp. Used by nurdlers (Google it!). Apparently made by bakers with the sweepings of the bakery floor at the end of the shift and left in the oven until the next shift when they were eaten - complete with sawdust and rodent droppings (optional!).
The Broyé du Poitou, an old, traditional French recipe for a buttery biscuit coming from the Poitou region of western France. Easy to make, doesn't need a special tin and traditionally broken into little pieces, for sharing, by giving one big punch to the middle of it. The hard biscuit then breaks into chunky shards.
Easiest recipe ever !! Small shortbread discs of crumbly delicious cheesiness. Fabulous with pasta or just nibbled with wine. Just 3 ingredients and ready in under quarter of an hour!! WARNING Totally addictive and highly calorific.
As many people have during this lockdown, we began to make sourdough bread but, as any sourdough baker will know, there is a lot of spare starter. We have been trying to find a delicious cracker recipe for ages and it turns out that all we needed was some sourdough starter. It's a great recipe to have to hand and easy to remember too!
This Italian biscuits called biscotti which means twice baked are my favorite festive bakes . Give it a go, your house will smell festive for hours, your cookie jar will be full ( not for long ) they are a real treat, perfect gift for friends and family.
With friends and family with coeliacs disease or a gluten intolerance I wanted to devise a recipe that everyone could eat. These cookies are so moorish, like a little rocky cake, they are crunchy and chewy with a fruit pop! They can also be dairy free if you substitute the butter for coconut oil, happy days.
These crisp cookies can be made with any fruit flavoured yogurt (I use varieties produced by Yeo Valley). Enjoy experimenting with the recipe! Makes 20 biscuits
For now or later, these refrigerator biscuits are just the thing to enjoy with a cup of coffee. Easy to make, and easy to bake, gently spicy and aromatic, the recipe could be altered with your favourite spices, or add a few nuts, or dried fruit. Makes about 30.
this is the only shortbread recipe I ever use now,the organic semolina gives this shortbread the most amazing crunch and texture,in the pictures I have decorated them with snowflakes as no Christmas is complete without it and with its long life span it is ideal for Christmas gifts and hampers
No Christmas is complete without a good helping of gingerbread and it makes a perfect seasonal gift too,perfect for those who make hampers or want a homespun Christmas, if well wrapped it will last 3 months but if you freeze them you have something you can store for emergency gifts!
So this is the recipe that all of my customers at Landgirls Cookery school in Hartshill have been asking for,just one of these little salty crackers isn't enough, they are ridiculously moreish and perfect for party buffets, we cooked these on our 12 bakes of Christmas class last week and they have been one of the most popular recipes yet!
I'm only adding this as I want a discount voucher, but being perfectionist, I would not offer anything less than.. well, perfect. The recipie has a strange amount of ingredients as it's not from the recipie book, please, don't be put off by that (and of course, you don't have to measure exactly). These are incredibly tasty, chewy and full of 'healthy energy' cookies. Best eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner, with milk or in the park. Also, I would like to mention, that it's not worth baking it if you are going to substitute or skip ingredients such as dried coconut, semolina, oat groats, cacao bean nibs and prunes, as without it, it will just be like any other cookies you've made before... p.s. sorry about the photo, only two cookies were left by the time i've got to my camera...
Crispy cookies with a beautiful dark colour and a great malty, almost coffee or chocolate-like flavour. For Christmas you could add flavorings such as 1 tsp mixed spices and ½ tsp grated orange zest – not Nordic, but very tasty!
