and she cooks
Original batch sent to me as a thank you. So good that I scoffed half before the offspring arrived home to noisily demand a share.
The batch pictured were baked by me last week. Divine. And gone already.
2 tablespoons honey
1⁄4 teaspoon bicarb soda
1 cup untoasted muesli
1⁄2 cup plain flour
1⁄2 cup desiccated or shredded coconut
1⁄4 cup brown sugar
1⁄4 mixed dried fruit
* Melt butter with honey (In the microwave or in a saucepan). Stir in the bicarb.
* Combine all remaining ingredients in a bowl mixing well. Stir in the honey butter mixture.
* Roll teaspoonsful onto a lightly greased or baking-paper lined trays. Flatten slightly with a fork.
* Bake in moderate oven (180 deg c) for 10 – 12 minutes or until golden. Cool on trays for a few minutes or until golden before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
ps. the child is still not homesick and I daren't ask about the hygiene situation; I just don't want to know any more. I'm too preoccupied by the fact he's not homesick.
gah .... quick, have a look at another felt animal.
I've called it a horse (on Flickr) but I think it's a mule really. And for those who asked about the books, there's now a link on yesterday's post to the op shop book with its title, while the felt animal pattern book is available here by preorder.
