Lydia decided cupcakes were a must, so I put her in charge of those, while I whipped up some of our favourite weet-bix slice and a butter cake...yummmmm! Some honey bicuits too? Well, why not?
This is a great recipe for kids to make...they love rolling the cookie dough into balls and covering them with coconut...so do I, for that matter :)
You will need:
125 g butter
1/2 cup caster sugar
2 tblspns coconut
2 tblspns honey
1 1/2 cups SR flour
extra coconut for rolling
Beat butter, sugar and egg until smooth. Stir in honey, coconut and sifted flour. Roll teaspoons of mixture into balls, then cover in extra coconut. Place on greased oven trays about 3cm apart, and flatten slightly with a fork.
Bake in a moderate oven for about 15 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool on trays.
I love the smell of fresh baked cookies filling the house...and that lunchboxes are sorted for the week :)
My next block for A Gardeners Journal is called Smell the Roses...
...orange roses are among my favourites :)
The other half of my Block B is almost complete, so hopefully I'll be back tomorrow to show you the rest. It's had me stumped for a while...there's a big block of fabric in it, with hearts appliqued onto it. This puzzles me, not only because it's the only applique in the entire quilt (the rest is stitchery) but hearts/ love motifs don't appear anywhere else either. So I've changed it a bit...you'll see what I mean tomorrow :)
