Anzac Biscuits

The 25th April is known worldwide as ANZAC Day, and is the day when the first military action taken in the First World War by the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps is recognised and honoured. This biscuit recipe was one used by families to send home baked treats to their loved ones serving at the front, as it keeps well and does not spoil in transit, partly due to the lack of eggs in the recipe.

Thanks to Mat Folas (Winner of Masterchef 2009) and proprietor of The Wild Garlic in Dorset, for this recipe, which he posted on his blog, and is originally courtesy of NZ Womans Weekly. I am staying true to the recipe, and giving measurements as published, but as requested by one of the followers of my blog, I have now provided equivalent weights! Continue reading

Extra Gingery Ginger Nut Biscuits

These biscuits are incredibly easy to bake. I came up with the recipe when I was pregnant with Peter, and had to commute to work by car for several hours each day. These biscuits helped with my morning sickness in the car, but are equally fantastic with a mug of coffee or tea. The original recipe was by Delia Smith, but I found it lacking in the Ginger Department for me, and stepped it up a few notches! Continue reading

Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti

Well, it is that time of the week again, and time for another biscuit recipe, in honour of Three Biscuit Thursday – this time it is Cinnamon Sugar Biscotti.

I was surfing the net looking for a new recipe and came across the Joy the Baker website. She has some gorgeous looking food on her blog, and this was one of the recipes she had posted. I believe it originally came from the Epicurious website. I was initially intimidated by the thought of baking biscotti, but believe me, they are much easier than you think they would be!

Crunchy Jumble Biscuits

In honour of Three Biscuit Thursday, I am going to post a new biscuit recipe on Thursday each week. This innaugural recipe is Crunchy Jumble Biscuits – a favourite in our house from , and a good way to use up crisped rice cereal. The original recipe was from a book called “Best Ever Cookies” by Hilaire Walden, but I when bake them they turn out crisp like biscuits and not soft like cookies. Continue reading

Stained Glass Biscuits

It was baking week a couple of weeks ago at our sons pre-school, and at each session, one of the mums does some baking with the children. At 2 of the sessions, I was providing the “baking”. Unfortunately I couldn’t stay for one of the sessions in the end, but I did provide something for the children to do – Stained Glass Biscuits, which appeared to be a big hit! Continue reading

Oatie Cookies

One of our favourite cookies is a simple Oatie Cookie. Similar in flavour to a Hobnob biscuit, but softer, and so much more satisfying to eat, knowing that you have baked it yourself.

This recipe can also be adapted to include chopped nuts, raisins, or chocolate chips (another favourite!). Continue reading
