Biscuits (what you call cookies)

Here are some I made yesterday. Melting moments for the grown ups, and daisy cookies for the kids.

They are beautiful, Ali.

Did you make them for a special gathering? For your immediate family?

Just for us ortho. We bake most of our own cakes aqd biscuits. I was really happy with the melting moments though. I have never made them before, but my mum used to makes them all the time, so i was pretty happy that they turned out well. . The daisy biscuits were just for fun for max mostly. They are just a vanilla biscuit with cranberries cut into circles then decorated with a blob of icing for glue, a foulpe of halved marshmallows and an m&m. Really simple.

Of course, family is a special gathering, the most special.
I always baked cookies and cakes for my family too. I'm glad the melting moments were a hit, as a family recipe/tradition. There's a lot to be said for that.

Straylian for "plorp" is my best guess. a unit of measure. I ran off to learn it too.

eta:
after a couple moment's reflection, I believe it's a typographical error that should read "couple". The f and the c are close together and "couple" works in context.

Good word, though. It should mean something. Perhaps related to loupe.

Well you do... and you repeatedly come up with these gorgeous creations. You're pretty talented in the dress 'em up department.
