After a slow start this morning, I finally managed to make some biscuits (something I've been trying to do since L bought his new book!)

It's a recipe from Mary Berry, and I venture to claim that these must be among the easiest biscuits in the world! All the melting and mixing is done in one pan (and you could use the same pan to weigh everything first as well to save more washing up), and there's no rolling or cutting out needed. Hurrah! So here's a piccie of the final product


and here's the recipe

Diggers (or Anzac cookies)

Ingredients -
150g butter
1 rounded tbspn golden syrup
175g granulated sugar
75g self-raising flour
75g desiccated coconut
100g porridge oats

Method -
1. Lightly grease baking trays and preheat oven to gas 4, 180C, 350F. Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a medium saucepan and heat gently until melted. Stir in the dry ingredients and mix well until evenly blended.

2. Spoon large teaspoonfuls of the mixture well apart on the prepared baking trays and flatten slightly with the back of the spoon. Yo should have enough for about 45 rounds. Bake for 8-10 minutes until they have spread out flat and are lightly browned at the edges.

3. Leave to cool on the trays for a few minutes, then carefully lift them off with a palette knife and place on a wire rack to cool completely. If the biscuits harden too much to life them off the tray, pop hem back into the oven for a few minutes to soften. Store in an airtight tin.
