Last week I treated myself to a new mixer. Aldi's Thursday offer was a bargain stand mixer in cream so I had to have it. Yes a kitchenaid mixer would be nice but I really don't like baking or even eating cakes enough to warrant the price. I also had a voucher so got the cute biscuit stamps for free.
We had to try both last Thursday afternoon. So obviously we would make biscuits. I did a basic mix which was fine but I think the stamps would work better with a really dry mix and something that doesn't rise as this obliterates the writing. Anyway with trial and error I am sure next times will be better.
So an hour or so later (I'm doing this with the help of an eager toddler so there's a lot of rolling, eating mix, squashing, starting again ....) a kitchen and child covered in flour and the biscuits were ready to go into the oven. At that point (no sooner I swear) I remembered with horror that both me and the other half have given up biscuits for lent (I've given up crisps as well so roll on Sunday!).
So a dilemma could Little L eat all those biscuits by herself and me not sample even one! I can't say what happened but there are no biscuits left.
