Saturday Baking

I’m usually a very basic (easy) baker, and I usually reach for this book every time
This is my 2nd copy of this book. My first one I obtained in high school, as my students cooking book used in home economics, basically it fell to pieces. My Special Aunty from Dalby got me this one for me and as you can see it is well used.
Today I reached for another book, I was thinking of doing jam drops, raspberry coconut slice, custard creams and choc chip biscuits.

So checked for ingredients so I could make the recipes I selected, or I could substitute if need be.

Who uses the butter wrapper to grease the baking trays?

So both recipes, I selected, from the Women’s Weekly needed things to be heated and cooled. So time management, or pretended I could apply some, kicked in.

This was how I did the apple custard custard creams. No fancy apple cutter. I didn’t double the recipe like I usually do.

They didn’t take that long to cook, with their custard, sugar, milk and cream cheese filling made and ready to put between two biscuits.

Do you think they generic diclofenac look like the book?

Meanwhile, between doing stages of first lot of biscuits I was doing these too.

Had to cut these ones out as well.

Half way through cooking I added a drop of jam.

They didn’t take long to cook either.

I melted the last of my Melbourne bought chocolate.
Today was a very warm day, all windows open and fans on, so working with melted chocolate really wasn’t like it should be on a winters day.

Do you think the end of the production line looks like the book? (giggle)

Knowing these two batches of biscuits wouldn’t last long with the crew, I reached for my old faithful cookbook to cook a double batch of choc chip biscuits.

The mixture looked good.

The uncooked biscuits, which I rolled between my hands to make into balls, and pressed down with a fork, yes I made them rather large.

My baking day is over till next time.
So when the smoko bell rings at Goodwood you will know what crew are eating next couple of days.

    Ooh those biccies sound good. I know they never last long but sometimes it is fun to make something new and a bit more time consuming. I don’t do much baking these days but you are making me want to do some … if only someone else would do the clean up.
