When we had put them all on the tray I was allowed
to lick the bowl. Yum, yum
Wow, what a good smell when they come out of the oven,
although Granny is always saying " You can't taste them too soon
or you will burn your tongue."
I tell her I'm the official taste tester, and I need more than one
to get a true taste. May be four or five, just to make sure the
batch is OK all the way through.
Now the official, as I know I am, needs to check to see
if any are burnt on the bottom.
No they are just right.
Now Granny tells me I have to share them with those
grandchildren. I think I need to take a few more to taste
test. I will store them in my secret tin.
HURRAY for the C.W.A. cook book.
This book looks old like Granny.
Alright I will give you the recipe but it's
in OLD measurements. What would you expect from
6 oz. S.R.Flour
2 oz. butter
2 oz. sugar
pinch of salt
2 oz. sultanas
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup of milk.
Sift flour and salt. Rub in the butter. Add all the other dry ingredients.
Mix with beaten egg and milk to make a stiff dough.
Place in spoonfuls in rough heaps on a greased tray.
Bake in a hot oven for 10 mins.
I used chocolate chip and apricot instead of the other fruit.
Plus I used cinnamon instead of nutmeg.
