“Let Them Eat Cake”

Hello, I love baking. It’s brilliant! (if you don’t want to read a recipe scroll down until its finished).

There is an excellent recipe for biscuits in the Green and Blacks Recipe Book.  The recipe is called Bea’s Thumbprint cookies.      You will need:

  • 175g softened butter
  •  175g caster sugar
  •  1 big egg
  • 125g self-raising flour
  • 175g plain flour 
  •  200g of chocolate spread

Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper. Cream the butter and sugar until it’s light and fluffy with an electric mixer. Add the egg and beat well. Stir in the plain and self raising flour and mix to a dough. Leave to rest for an hour.

Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 / 180 C/ 350 F

Use the palms of your hands to roll about one heaped table spoon of the dough into a ball about an inch in diameter.   Use the palm of your hand to flatten it onto the baking sheet. Press your thumb into the middle of your  dough circles and fill the hole with delicious chocolate spread. Bake for 10-12 minutesor until the cookies are golden brown.

These are fab tasting cookies, I’ve made millions of these and they were all a success.Cookies,cakes and pastries are all just so yummy.

 I favour the saying “Let them Eat Cake”. I had the best brekfast ever, at  a hotel in Brands Hatch place. I had raspberries, raspberries, pain au chocolate, custard pastry and I had a whole pot of tea to myself!!
