The things I do to avoid housework. Train of thought went: must vacuum (I’m too much of a pedant to call it Hoovering when I have a Dyson, and can’t make Dysoning catch on) – then will have a cup of tea – but ooh, a biscuit to go with the tea would be nice – do we have any biscuits? – oh, only digestives – ah well – but I could make some – and then I can tidy up…
Biscuits have just come out of the oven, Dyson is still sitting in the corner. Not allowed a biscuit until I’ve cleared up though. I’m tough with myself, sometimes.
You can make them in about 10 minutes (it’s a dead simple melt-butter-then-chuck-everything-else-in kind of recipe). They take 20 minutes to cook, with a bit longer to cool and firm up a bit. Perfect interval to do some tedious housework then get comfy on the sofa with the Christmas delicious. a mug of tea and one of these beauties. One word of advice, don’t be lazy and just dollop the batter onto a baking sheet: make the little round balls Dan tells you too as the mix really spreads and you’ll end up with beasts of biscuits instead of a collection of neat little cookies. But it’s Hallowe-en so I’ll forgive myself the laziness since beasts are the order of the day.
But I suppose I best Dyson up now? (No, it just doesn’t work. Damn you Hoover and your ubiquity.)
The I can have a cup of tea and one of these babies, fresh from the oven.
