Biscuit Friday

No tearooms today. It’s jolly parky in Perthshire and this morning’s thick frost made me feel like staying indoors and pottering about in the kitchen. I made sweet potato and red pepper soup for lunch, and baked some biscuits.

I christened the beautiful wooden pestle and mortar I received for my birthday recently

using it to crush some sunflower and pumpkin seeds, to put into oatcakes:

I also made some Appin biscuits (so called because, according to the blurb in the wonderful Macmillan Coffee Shop Recipe Book fom whence the recipe came, the recipe was donated by someone who was from Appin, a remote part of northern Scotland), which went down nicely with a steaming teacup of Twinings 1706 tea. The biscuits are stuffed with sultanas:

The Quarrymill Recipe Book is full of wonderful things (including today’s sweet potato and red pepper soup) and I’m steadily working my way through them all.

I’ve put on a couple of pounds since I started this tearoom reviewing business, but I suspect staying at home is just as bad for the waistline with that recipe book to hand.

  3. Thank you very much, you’re so kind. I’m glad you liked the rabbits, I wanted to take one of the purple ones home with me. I’ve just been looking at your blog and the chocolate hazlenut spread – yum! I’m thinking of all the wonderful things that would go with…
