On a roll

We've been on a roll all week. Am rather proud of ourselves as we've surpassed our own expectations of making more than 2 new recipes a week (pats Kristian's back). Needless to say there has been A LOT of testy moments coupled with lotsa making up and of course lotsa taste testing. Am fortunate a friend offered to buy some of our 'experiments' and the extras from our orders so I have put together for him a care package of sorts containing loaf cakes, cookies, brownies, and fudge. How lucky he is!!

The above is 3 variations on the date & nut cookie mentioned previously in the blog but had no picture posted. Which do you think is the prettier shape? I have to admit I'm not a fan of dates so naturally these cookies don't really do it for me but Kristian loves them. He polished off the whole lot within 2 days!

These are available for orders, RM25/box (around 400g)
You can specify for roll or pillow shapes.

Okay we had some problems making our fudge. We cooked them without a thermometer as advised, opting to eyeball the hot mixture over the stove for the right color and consistency. It looked fine on the top but little did we realise the bottom was browning too much as the fudge continues to cook after it has been taken off the heat. This lil mishap took moments to rectify and the fudge turned out and tasted excellent ; ) We made them in toffee and chocolate flavors, both with almond bits in them. We are definitely making more of these and in other variations.
