Crumbs - that can only mean one thing.
I've been eating something really tasty :))
Maybe I should start at the beginning - well I would but I forgot to take some pictures as I started.
Doh, silly me!!!
You would think I would know by now to always take pictures!!!
I decided I wanted to make some empire biscuits. Yup you read that right - I made them, not Karen. It's not often I get let loose in my own kitchen to bake but today I did.
Anyway you mix together 225g (7oz) butter, 100g (4oz) of granulated sugar and 250g (8oz) plain flour and then add around 60ml (4 tbsp) of milk.
Then you roll that out on a floured worktop. Cut out some round pastry shapes with your pastry cutter.
Then cook in the oven at 180oC/350oF/ Gas4 for 10 minutes.
Leave to cool completely.
Sandwich two of the biscuits together with lovely jam in the middle.
Make some lovely glace icing with some icing sugar and a few spoonsfuls of warm water.
Cover the top of the biscuits with the icing.
And then the best bit - a jelly tot on the top :))
Et voila!!! Empire biscuits.
All of that lovely buttery, jammy and sugary goodness.
Get in my tummy, lol.
Oh well there goes my diet for yet another day.
But it was really tasty :))
