Well it's been doing a lot of this recently here, which was making me very happy until I saw the news reports and heard just how much disaster this lovely white stuff was causing the sheep farmers. Sobering news reports all week about folks trapped and animals dying under the snow. Look how deep it was along the side of the road below. Granted some of that was thrown up by the snow plows, but there's a lot of it even so.
Where we are had only a foot or so of snow and I was rather enjoying the return-to-Christmas feel that was in our house this week. The wee folks are off and well and truly under my feet, so I have not gotten much crafting done. Baking is the one thing they all love to do though and so there was been plenty of that going on...
Above is Nigella's gorgeous sticky ginger cake, so I can't give you the recipe (but you can try this link, found for us by Sue) for that but I can pop you the recipe for the oatmeal cookies below, since I made it up just this morning.
4oz Plain Flour
4oz Caster Sugar
1/2 teaspoonful of Baking Soda
4 tablespoonfuls Honey
Cream the butter and sugar and then mix everything else in well. Dough should form a ball. Roll out the dough and cut out cookies with cookie cutters. Bake in a pre-heated oven at 150˚C for about 20-25 mins. Get the kettle on for a cup of tea!
Hope it tickles!
