This week was biscuit week, so Shazia and I decided to try for savoury biscuits! Shazia did cheese biscuits and some really nice looking chutney. I decided to go with one of Mrs Beeton's classics and made some simple Crispy Crackers. With no photo to go with, I had no idea what they would look like when they were complete, so I put my trust in Mrs Beeton and this was the result:
Look! I made some spaceships! The biscuits all puffed up and looked like little pillows. No idea if that's how they should look, but that's what I got!
I made red onion chutney to go with my crispy cracker biscuits and cheese. Yaaay!
I'm pleased with this bake for a number of reasons. Firstly because Mrs Beeton's recipes still work really well. Secondly because I made biscuits basically out of 8oz flour and one egg yolk and some milk. And thirdly because it all came together properly, and I trusted my instincts to go with the flow. Hoorah!
I'm glad that Shazia and I are going on this baking adventure. Looking forward to next week already! :)
