I'm back.......


I feel like I have been on a merry-go-round....the flu is still with me, the new computer system has been installed at work, two weeks, 11 hour days with the flu, so tomorrow will be a big test, did I take any of the training in....oh well....the head is clearer today which is a plus...the boys loved the 'Chocolate Chip Cookies' I made for them last week so this week I have made them another old favourite...'Anzac Biscuits' I had forgotten how easy these are to make....below is the recipe....I have not had a needle in my hand for over a week, so this afternoon, lookout......thanks for the emails sent wondering where I have been, that is just so thoughtful........my blog reading has been disastrous so there will be a lot of catching up I think....hope none of you get this nasty flu.....happy stitching....
Anzac Biscuits
1 cup of rolled oats
1 cup of plain flour
1 cup of sugar
3/4 cup coconut
125g or 4 oz of butter
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon of bi-carb soda
2 tablespoons boiling water
Combine oats, sifted flour, sugar and coconut. Combine butter and golden syrup, stir over gentle heat until melted. Mix bi-card soda with boiling water, add to melted butter mixture, stir into dry ingredients. Take teaspoonfuls of mixture and place on lightly greased oven trays, allow room for spreading. Cook in a slow oven for 20 minutes, loosen while warm, then cool ion trays.
Enjoy......

Glad you are enjoying the biscut making. I usually make a quadruple batch once a week. I do the same with cake too. With my tribe it does not last a week, especially if Mr3YearOld finds the tin...... *grin*
Hope you are feeling better, it can be very wearing not being well over a period of time.
