In the morning before the family arrived I made some Julpepparkakor biscuits. It's an easy recipe, the dough behaves well, easy enough for a child to handle and the spicy little biscuits are good to munch with a glass of mulled wine.
Boil together 3oz light brown sugar
1fl oz water
Add 2oz margarine to melt then cool.
Mix 8oz plain flour
teaspoon each of cinnamon, ginger and bicarb of soda.
Work dough until smooth.
Roll very thinly and back for 5 - 8 minutes at gas 3-4.
Makes about 100 biscuits
They taste good!
We are not going to starve, the doorbell kept ringing with deliveries, first of all a parcel from Booths. Oh, goody!
Then the first batch of family arrived home with a hamper from Betty's. By 'eck, summat more from 'op north!
What's inside? Ah, health food, - I think not! We are going to become as fat as pigs!
Family, friends and feasting, what could be nicer. I wish you all, dear Bloggers, a very Happy Christmas holiday and a healthy and creative year to come.
