Baking Biscuits

Since I made the decision to bake my own biscuits (cookies) instead of buying them, I have spent a few Saturday afternoons in the kitchen. The baked goods that I make are not as sweet as the factory-made ones – and they are definitely more interesting as I attempt to make the biscuits that people I know have shared with me.

This weekend, I attempted to recreate the ones made by a friend of mine. She had explained to me what to do and I tried my best to follow her instructions.

I began with a shortbread base and then, after baking the biscuit for 10 minutes, I covered it with the trial mix my husband buys. Once the base was covered with nuts, raisins, cranberries, and seeds, I poured a can of condensed milk over the covering.

Once the topping had been poured on, I placed the baking tray in the oven for another 10 minutes. The condensed milk bubbled, showing me that it was baked and ready to take out.

I cut the biscuits into small pieces and, when they had cooled, placed them in the mason jar that I have dubbed ‘the biscuit jar’. The treats are now available to anyone who wants something sweet with their tea for the rest of the week.

According to my husband, I haven’t quite got the taste right – it needs to be a little more creamy. I think I need to work on my shortbread mixture and make sure that I have added the right amount of butter to my dough. But that will improve, I think, the more I bake.

Do you enjoy baking?
