These are the final pictures I took at Rozelle Park - was that a collective sigh of relief I heard lol.
I came across these sculptures and wondered what they were as there was no details in the park. I decided to photograph them and find out when I got home.
They were sculpted by a man called Ronald Rae who is a sculptor who was born in Ayr (where Rozelle Park is).
The sculptures are collectively known as The Deposition of Christ.
The link will explain a bit more fully. I thought they were a bit unusual and worth showing you.
Now on to the more lighthearted part of my post :))
I have had a couple of fellow bloggers requesting that I put my cookie recipe up so here you are.
The recipe comes from "The Cookie Book"
115g (4oz) butter or marg at room temp and diced
50g (2oz) granulated sugar
75g (3 oz) soft dark brown sugar
2.5ml (1/4 tsp) vanilla essence
125g (4 1/2 oz) plain (all purpose) flour
2.5ml (1/2 tsp) bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
pinch of salt
175g (6oz) chocolate chips.
Preheat oven to 180C/350F/ Gas 4
Cream together butter or marg with the two sugars until mixture is light and fluffy.
In another bowl mix egg and vanilla essence, then gradually beat into butter and sugar mixture. Sift in the flour, bicarb of soda and salt.
Stir to blend.
Add chocolate chips (any flavour you like - orange is VERY nice) and mix well.
Place rounded teaspoonfuls of the dough, spaced about 5cm apart, onto a prepared baking tin.
Bake for around 10-15 mins until light coloured. I like to cook them until they are soft in the middle but crispy round the edges.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
I'm going to make some more this weekend. In fact I've looked through the cookie book and there are lots of lovely recipes so I might make something different. I'll let you know :)))
