I found this recipe and thought, Hey that sounds easy and it's different way of making biscuits:
|These are called Bonfire Biscuits because they are great to eat standing around the bonfire on bonfire night! |
6 oz vegan margarine
1 tbsp syrup
1 cup of each of plain flour, sugar, dessicated coconut, oats
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda dissolved in 2 tbsp hot water
Melt the marg and syrup in a saucepan. Mix in the dry ingredients. Add bicarb and water.
Place 6 or 8 teaspoonfuls of the mixture on an ungreased tray and bake at gas mark 3, 170C until golden (10 to 15 mins). Cool slightly and remove to cooling rack.
Repeat until all the mixture has been used.
So I have all the ingredients which is a bonus. I changed it a wee bit by cutting the sugar and coconut in half and instead of oatmeal I used cornmeal.
Smarter bakers than I may already be laughing.
These are not biscuits! These are cookies! Fucking Brits and their twisted language. I hate falling for this. I wasn't even aware it was a UK site or I'd have twigged earlier. And I kept telling myself, "That's a lot of fat and sugar for biscuits..." and honestly, they are sweet enough with my alterations that if I'd used the full recipe as was I'd be in a sugar coma, or running naked in the rain from the sugar high.
As a cookie they're pretty nice though!
