Soph’s away on business this week. Years ago that would have meant me heading to the pub for a session. These days it’s a session in the kitchen!
We’re getting low on emergency freezer biscuits, so I decided to re-stock. We’ve always done oat biscuits before, and while they make great emergency hangover breakfasts, it’s time for a change, so I decided to go for slice and bake cookies.
The cream cheese recipe makes 48 biscuits. Not only is that more than we need, it also wouldn’t leave enough butter for the chocolate ones, so I’m halving the recipe. Also I don’t have any walnuts, so I’m using blanched hazelnuts because that’s what I’ve got on hand.
The chocolate pepper ones I just followed the recipe for, except for using demerara sugar instead of expensive decorative sugar to coat. I will note that with over a tbsp of coffee and only 1/4 tsp pepper… I’m not sure the name is very accurate!
