We were gifted four of these precious homemade biscuits by a lovely Lady (MP) who lives out Ravenshoe way.
They were delicious, but had something in them we couldn’t quite work-out…
MP kindly shared her recipe, and due to the rainy weather and flooding around the Farm – which prevents the majority of outdoor activities – today the recipe has had its maiden voyage at Strigidae Farm.
Thanks MP! :D
185 white sugar,
250g SR Flour,
60 g coconut,
¼ cup custard powder
1 cup dried blueberries (dried currents &/or cranberries are also yummy!)
1 cup chopped pecan nuts,
½ cup rice bubbles.
Dash of Vanilla,
1 tspn Salt.
Mix together all dry ingredients except sugar.
Cream butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt.
Add egg and mix thoroughly.
Combine wet & dry ingredients.
Roll into balls.
Arrange balls on a baking tray and ensure they aren’t touching.
Flatten – then press/flatten further with a fork to decorate.
Bake at 180°C until golden.
All mixed up
Into the foggy oven they go!
Cooked, ready to cook, and waiting to be cooked
(for some reason, this photo came out looking ‘anaemic’ – they were actually a lovely golden brown)
When baking these cookies in humid/rainy weather, get them into an airtight container as soon as they’re cool, otherwise they go soft again, quite quickly!
