Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Florentine slice

    • aargle on May 26, 2014

      I love this slice. No beaters required just a little chopping. I spread the melted chocolate on top of the slice.

  • The big biscuit

    • Melanie on May 26, 2014

      Mum used to make this one when we were younger - although the biscuits were smaller than suggested. The flavour (especially the orange) and texture was great.

  • Chocolate fudge bars

    • Melanie on May 26, 2014

      Another taste of childhood. These bars have a soft texture with a cocoa-buttery taste as opposed to chocolate. Somewhat cloying in flavour, it's hard to eat a lot of these but they are good.

  • Dream bars

    • Melanie on May 26, 2014

      Mum's muesli slice recipe. Very easy to make. Lovely soft texture.

    • valbe on January 13, 2022

      I first made this Sept 1992 and now almost 30 years later (om) I am still making it. It's good, but mainly, I make the bars to use up the leftover Christmas mince. Fruit mince does freeze well, though, which is the another alternative. Or maybe to make more mince tarts!

  • Monte Carlos

    • Melanie on May 30, 2014

      Much nicer than the store bought variety. These become soft after filling.

  • Peanut butter crinkles

    • Melanie on May 30, 2014

      Sandy / crumbly texture.

  • Weekender biscuits

    • Melanie on May 26, 2014

      Good simple flavours. Rolled in cornflakes to add texture.

  • Meringues

    • lou_weez on November 05, 2017

      My mum made these when I was little so, I took a trip down memory lane today and was not disappointed. These meringues are dipped in chocolate and a little chewy on the inside - YUM!

  • Sultana biscuits

    • MollieWA on June 12, 2020

      Found the batter for these biscuits too runny to roll into balls. Wondering whether the ingredient ratios are right. Had to had a lot more flour and that made them, well, too floury!

  • Wholemeal bran biscuits

    • Ganga108 on March 01, 2022

      This is a great way to get your daily intake of bran! They say we need at least 2 Tblspn of bran each day along with other forms of fibre, to keep us, uhuum, regular. Rather than mix bran with our cereal for breakfasts, this is a more palatable way of getting our allowance. Three of these crispy crunchy biscuits will provide what you need. Eat plain, or with some butter, honey or other spreads, with cheese, or with a large cuppa. This recipe includes eggs. As you know I do not use eggs in my cooking. Here we replaced them with a mixture of chickpea flour, cashew powder, baking soda and water. It also makes the bickies more flavoursome!

  • Bran butter biscuits

    • Ganga108 on March 01, 2022

      These are Australian style biscuits, not the (strange, to us) US version of biscuits. I made these Bran Butter Biscuits because one of the young ones in my life loved oat biscuits when he was really young, and these are close enough for him. They are buttery, but with so little moisture they can be a little dry. Best snacked alongside a cuppa tea with a friend and some good gossip stories. You will eat more than you anticipate – make a double batch if necessary. I have used oat bran in this recipe but you can just as well use wheat bran. I make these in the food processor.
