Does this happen at your house?

ERRRRRUUUUGGHHHH!!!!! (say it out loud ladies)

This would have to be one of the more gross habits our little darlings have in their arsenal. It’s right up there with using the front of their t-shirts as napkins, and the entire length of one sleeve as a hanky.

Because everyone in my family except me eats peanut butter, the tub becomes a veritable minefield, lest i get the merest hint of peanut butter . it won’t kill me, i just don’t like it!

and now, THREE biscuit (that's cookie for your north american folks out there) recipes as promised.


125g butter, softened
1 egg
3/4 C white sugar
2 C standard plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp grated lemon rind

cream butter and sugar. add egg, beating well. sift flour and baking powder together and add to the creamed butter and sugar. roll heaped teaspoonsful of mixture into balls and place on a greased oven tray. flatten slightly with a floured fork. bake at 190 deg C for around 12 minutes until pale golden.

you'll obviously have to use that measurements converter!
