How many functions do you go to during the festive season where it’s a case of ‘bring a plate’? This slice could be the answer. Easy to make, decorated with white icing and red and green cherries to give a Christmasy feel – job done.
These almond biscuits are thin and crispy and delicious.
These no-bake snowballs have an interesting combination of ingredients – cornflakes, coconut, jam, cake or biscuits – all held together with copha. Don’t think that makes a light and fluffy mix, which is sort of what I’d expect from a snowball, but it does make a tasty treat.
This was quite a favourite back in the 80s, but I haven’t made it for a long time. Understandably not everyone’s a ginger fan, but if you are give it a try – it’s really good.
Lovers of white chocolate will enjoy these. They’re a great combination of dried apricots, coconut and, of course, white chocolate.
This is a fairly basic biscuit recipe, but the crushed nuts, sugar and cinnamon coating is what makes them different. If you didn’t want to made them as logs, they’d also be good rolled out and cut into biscuit shapes.
I do find some unusual recipes as I go through all the cuttings. This one not only has an unusual name it also has an unusual topping. The base is fairly standard, but the meringue topping with coconut, orange rind and rice bubbles is quite different. I think it would work…….
One of our good friends always makes a batch of cheese biscuits to serve with drinks whenever we go there for dinner. I confess I’ve copied the idea, but make this version with sesame seeds instead – both taste great.
It looks like Mum must have chopped this recipe off the back of a packet of Sunbeam raisins. It’s not a particularly unusual recipe but the combination of chocolate and raisins always works – the cinnamon is an extra touch.
I’m yet to find a better Carrot Cake recipe than this one (including in Mum’s collection). I’ve been making it for years. It’s quick and easy to make, lovely and moist, but the best bit is the icing, it’s terrific. To be honest I think I mainly make it for the icing………….
