Sesame Street

Remember how Sesame Street was "brought to you by" a particular letter and number each time? Well, today is brought to you by the letter "B"...

This morning I took Noah to the bank to pay in a cheque and change our remaining dollars back into pounds; then on to the Co-op to buy bread and butter. While we were out, Susie helped Jo make biscuits, from a recipe she wrote down at nursery. I like that the recipe traces the biscuits from source, in a little booklet Susie had to fill-in/illustrate. Here it is:

"My honey biscuit recipe book by Susannah Dowsett."

How to make honey biscuits:
1. Mix together 120g of sugar and 120g of butter until creamy.
2. Add 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 egg yolk. Mix together.
3. Add 180g of self-raising flour and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon; mix together until it forms a dough-like texture.
4. Take a teaspoon amount and roll into a ball shape; then roll in a mixture of sugar and cinnamon.
5. Place on a baking tray, leaving enough room for the biscuit to grow.
6. Put in the oven at gas-mark 4 (170C) for about 12-15 minutes.
7. Allow to cool before eating.
