I have been baking peanut butter biscuits (cookies) this afternoon. I know they are popular, so I thought, OK, I will double the recipe, and so in went double the amount of ingredients, and I looked at the poor 36 year old Kenwood, valiantly stirring this heaving mass around, and realised that I had doubled the already doubled recipe, and so I actually quadrupled the original one. And that is probably the longest sentence in history.
The maths, people... My brain is fried, and so am I after standing there timing tray after tray after tray. I now have 3 large Quality Street tins full, and another large tin full of the Custies from yesterday.
I think most people will be getting the peanut butter ones for Christmas. Mince pies are next on the list. The fruit mince. I have already done the Christmas cake and I will put the marzipan on that one later I think. I loathe the stuff, but I think others like it, so on it will go.
And now we are off to Jean's for supper. I will be back...............
