As the numbers increase I’ve resorted to cooking again!
Until I discovered The Biscuiteers my previous efforts were rarely more than a simple shape with a bit of water icing splodged on top. I can’t remember at what point I upped my game but I made the classic mistake of doing it in front of the children which means that now they have very high expectations whenever I mention making biscuits (as opposed to cookies which are a whole different ball game).
The two things which I now do differently to ensure a complete batch of consistently good looking biscuits are: 1) to roll the dough out between two sheets of baking parchment using a couple of placemats to guarantee it is the same thickness; 2) to put the iced biscuits back into the oven to harden off. Both of these steps do mean that they take longer to make, can’t say the same about the length of time they take to get eaten.
