We are travelling back to the 1930’s with the Bestway Cookery Gift Book.
The tagline reads:
“A book that will take you, step by step, through the Everyday Dishes to Delightful Experiments in high class Cookery!”
If that doesn’t inspire you what will?! 😁
This one starts with the filling first, a bit like eating your dessert before dinner, which is something that sounds good to me!
Cream 3/4 oz butter with 2 dessert spoons of caster sugar and stir in a tablespoon of ground Brazil nuts and a few drops of vanilla essence.
Now onto the main event – the dough..
Sieve 3 oz flour, 1 oz cornflour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder. Rub in 1 oz margarine with a mini blender if you’re feeling lazy (like me 😁), add one egg yolk and a spoonful of milk and water mix until it comes together as a dough.
Roll it out on a floured board into a thin oblong shape and spread it evenly with the filling. (Here’s something I prepared earlier moment.) Rolling it up like a Swiss roll and cut it into biscuit sized slices.
Pop them into a ‘fairly hot oven’ (I picked 180C) for ten to fifteen minutes.
They come out lovely and crunchy and a the taste is a lot like biscotti.
Do try it and let me know what you think 😉
Thanks again for visiting my little blog, hope to see you back again soon.
