In the afternoon, I decided to do some baking. Coffee kisses (recipe below):
And some apple muffins:
I finished the last of the four blouses I'd cut out a wee while ago.
I made a bit of a boob, though. Instead of 4" between the buttonholes (& buttons), I'd only made mine 3" apart. I didn't realise until I put it on yesterday and I kept thinking "why is this front flapping open all the time?". Thankfully, nothing was ever on view that wasn't meant to be on view. Phew! :oD The blouse is in the wash today but, when it's in the ironing pile, I'll just add another buttonhole & button to stop the front flapping.
6 oz SR flour
3 oz butter
2 oz caster sugar
1 egg yolk
1 tsp liquid coffee or 1 tsp instant coffee dissolved in 1 tsp boiling water
Heat the oven to 190ºC.
Mix the flour, butter and sugar in a bowl until it resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg yolk and the coffee and mix to a stiff dough. Take teaspoons of the mixture and roll into small balls. Place on baking trays and bake for 15 minutes. Place on a wire rack to cool.
Put two together with butter icing (2 oz butter, 4 oz icing sugar). Eat. :o)
