Cookies From Cornwall

A huge thankyou to ElisabethD of Cornish Cream who posted a really easy recipe last week. Do click on the link to find out more. I made some on Saturday evening…but was short of sultanas. Instead I chopped some dried apricots into small pieces and swapped the vanilla essence for almond.

I got about three dozen biscuits from the quantities given, and they taste lovely. I have packed some away in airtight boxes in the freezer, but we did enjoy a few over the weekend with a cuppa.

Home made biscuits taste infinitely nicer than the dusty packet ones, and they work out cheaper. It took me around half an hour to make this batch [and next time I plan to make double quantities]

The only downside is the calories in them…


  1. I'm so glad you tried them out! I have just made another big batch for the workmen who are here this week....somehow the previous biscuits didnt last long!

  2. But calories aren't bad Angela - and there are no lurking artificial ingredients. I'm going to check this recipe out and may bake some to take to Mags' Allergy NI fundraiser on the 27th.

  3. I wish I'd not seen them. I bake them - I eat them!

  4. Delicious looking cookies, I'm not so keen on sultanas in cookies but apricots YUM!! I could just eat a couple with my cuppa.

  5. Those look like what my family call 'sultana blobs' - though entirely possible to make with any dried fruits. They keep very well and are yummy.


Always glad to hear from you - thanks for stopping by!
