After the old forum software breaking in a way that we were unable to fix, we've migrated the site to a new platform.
Some elements aren't working as we'd hoped - some avatars didn't survive the transition, and we're still having issues with attachments that weren't added as inline images, but we're hoping to have that all sorted out soon.
excellent citrus shorties. many variations
Made this recipe up the other week, a variation on a wartime recipe of my grandmother's
60gram sugar (plus extra for coating)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
Zest of one orange (or lemon or lime)
Cream fat and sugar
Add zest and essence and mix
Add flours and mix
Roll into balls about 2.54cm diameter
Roll in sugar to coat
Place on baking tray and flatten slightly
Bake in medium oven until done (JUST starting to brown) about 20min
Original was in imperial quantities, did you guess?
Original had custard powder rather than cornflour and no essence or zest.
Egg/dairy free because they were not available back then. Still delicious due to fatty sugary goodness
You may want to double quantities.
