Another intermission over here. Thanks so much for coming back... really. I think/hope my bloggers-block is starting to lift, and so have given this space a bit of love and affection in the form of a new banner. One of the reasons things have been quiet over here is that my camera broke last week. So, while it's getting serviced I'll be going though iphoto and posting some old pictures. With any luck my camera won't be away too long - I'm already geting twitchy without it.
So, today's olde photo... I've seen these biscuits also referred to as melting moments, but they'll always be yo-yo's to me. Perhaps it's an Australian thing? Everyone has a version of them. My grandma is famous for these in our family, and I make them to her recipe. It has to be said: they're bloody fantastic!
10-12oz unsalted butter (depending on how buttery you like these things)
4oz custard powder
4oz icing sugar
12oz plain flour
Cream butter and icing sugar. Sift flour and custard powder well and add to creamed mixture. Roll in small balls, press down with fork and and bake in moderate oven/350 degrees for about 20 minutes. When cold, join together with vanilla butter icing and try not to eat too many in one sitting. It's a physical challenge!
Oh, and some of you asked about the print in the photo of our cabinet in my last post. It's a print of a Matisse sketch, found in a local print shop years ago. For anyone interested, I just did a quick search, and it's also available here.
Ok then, I'll be back. And with sewn goods, I promise. :)
