Helen’s Best Ever Biscuits

Last night I figuratively let down the hair after work and had one hell of a night out with one of my best friends, lots of talk, lots of vodka fire-engines, lots of dancing, lots of laughs and a cute boy or two. Total blast of a night and I got to wear a gorgeous skirt I picked up yesterday from Myer for $18 reduced from $60! score!
I made the best biscuits I have ever made and/or eaten the other day, a variation of a family staple called Apricot Wheat-germ Biscuits, these I think shall be called Sultana Hazelnut Biscuits.20060218_7833

Ingredients:
1.5 cups soft brown sugar
250g softened cooking margarine
2 eggs
dollop of vanilla
1 cup cornflakes
1 cup coconut
3/4 cup sultanas
1 cup hazelnut meal
1.75 cups whole-meal plain flour
3tsp baking powder

Method:
Preheat oven to 160°C and grease biscuit trays. Cream together margarine and sugar, add in eggs. All in together this fine weather mix in the rest of the ingredients, adding a bit of milk if mixture is too dry or some more flour if mixture is too moist.
Roll into balls and flatten lightly and cook in oven till when a finger pressed lightly into a biscuit does not leave a mark. Makes plenty.

  1. Those look really delicious. What are sultanas? Oh, and the cake plate, like you said, is terrific for photographing/displaying your cookies (biscuits). Cheers!

  2. Hi Liesl, Sultanas are a form of dried grapes, I believe they are also called Golden Rasins in other parts of the world – they are a softer and sweeter form of rasin. cheers 🙂

  3. Well im glad that you had fun dancing away with me. And for the record…you were sooo drinkning those drinks heaps faster than me Missy!!! I think that you may be the bad influence 🙂 But it will have to become a semi-regular thing! And NO BEAT!!!

  4. I was pretty sure, but know I know. Biscuits are cookies! 🙂 hee hee hee Fun on the new skirt!! I just bought a new one myself, but it would look way better if I were a size 10 again. LOL
