Old Faithfuls

I made peanut brownie biscuits this afternoon. I hadn’t made them since before the year dot. I was apprehensive. However, I used a tried and true recipe from my faithful old friend, the 1967 edition of the Edmonds Cookery Book, and no biscuit could have turned out finer.

My Edmonds Cookery Book has been with me to almost every corner of the world. It looks well travelled ……. and  even  well chewed, which seems appropriate for a cookery book.

No need to chew paper today; here’s a few biscuits from the batch.

Something else I did today that I haven’t done since before the year dot; I licked the mixing bowl clean – not literally, I used a spoon and licked that clean.  Delicious fun.
