It’s a Perfect Day to Bake Biscuits…

It’s pouring down and miserable here which means it’s a perfect day for baking something calorific. After reading Breathe, a few people have asked what the hell an Aztec biscuit is having failed to find them via google. According to my mum, they’re a recipe she copied years ago from a daytime TV show and our family have been baking and scoffing them ever since. They are not things of beauty but oh my, they are delicious.

Aztec Biscuits

Beat 2 oz sugar with 6 oz butter until fluffy. Melt 4 oz milk chocolate and 3 oz dark in a glass bowl over a pan of hot water, and add to the sugar and butter. Stir in 6 oz plain flour and 1 tablespoon cocoa powder. Add 3 oz lightly crushed (not obliterated!) cornflakes. Put blobs onto a greased tray and bake at 180c (356f) for ten minutes or so.

Et voila. Jem’s favourite biccies 

As you can see, Aldi’s finest is absolutely bob on for these, but the chocolate, oh it has to be Cadbury’s if you can find it!

Don’t be scrapping over licking the bowl, now.

Absolutely not things of beauty but delicious and perfect with a brew.
