We eat biscuits like they are going out of fashion in this house. A packet can disappear in instants. I’ve really cut down though on how many biscuits we buy this year. I’d much rather bake the biscuits so we know exactly what the girls are eating.
These Homemade Lemon Iced Gems go down really well – plus they are super cute and oh so summery! They are so dinky that even the most calorie conscious guest cannot refuse one (or maybe more!)
The sugar cookie recipe is one of my upmost favourites. It can be halved or doubled easily and is so adaptable – Any shapes of cookies are possible and the consistency is just right for icing on. These biscuits are great for freezing (without the icing) both cooked and the dough before cooking. At the risk of sounding like Nigella, I ALWAYS have a supply of dough ready in the freezer for emergencies. Everyone has biscuit related emergencies?
If you are not so keen on the lemony taste, you can omit it for vanilla extract or even almond.
Bake of the Week continues to show some brilliant bakes as usual. My To Be Baked list is never going to shrink with all these lovely ideas.
Corina from Searching for Spice satisfied my Oat obsession with these Oaty Raisin Bites
I love using yoghurt in baking recipes – One of my fridge essential items is a pot of natural yoghurt. I use it in everything! Cheryl from Madhouse Family Reviews added Strawberry drinking yoghurt to her Pear Myrtle Cherry Yoghurt Muffins. They look great!
I just love this Summer Berry Gateaux from Kirsty at Hijacked By Twins – Perfect for a bank holiday.
I keep going back to this Pound Cake from Sadaf’s Culinary Adventures – It looks such a good bake – The texture is perfect.
We have a new member of our Bake of the Week team. Joining us for the first time this week is Elizabeth from Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary. I am in awe of the fabulous pictures of this wonderful Rhubarb and Saffron Cake.
And I’ve saved my favourite for last – I was yearning for Julie’s Apple & Cinnamon Scones already but then I saw that she served them with caramel on top. WoW!!
