Chrimbly Count down - Baking✵ ✶ ✷

11th December : Baking 

   ✶ ✷  
Himself and the boys have legs so hollow that baking evaporates before it has even had time to cool down, which meant baking large batches regularly became a way of life. Then this summer when lock down briefly lifted, the boys moved out to either start work in a new town or return to uni. Himself remained the sole baking consumer and he has done sterling work!

These lemon and ginger shortbread were as a result of me noticing the biscuit tin was a little bare. Himself had been working outside on the van and the weather (and the van to be honest) had been a little foul and I knew he would need some sort of pick-me-up with his mug of tea. 
They just managed to last until the evening ....... he felt a whole lot better (and is still as thin as a reed!) And if you fancy trying them - they are indeed very more-ish.... the link is HERE

*And since the original baking, I have made a further three batches (I am eating one now with a mug of tea - bliss)

  2. As usual your photos are beautifully stages; they do sound good and I suspect just eating one is not an option! x

  3. They look very christmassy. Perfect with a brew or a festive walk I imagine. X

  4. We clearly had the same idea. I think I'll be baking trees instead of stars next time. X

  7. Those biscuits sound really nice. I think I will definitely be giving them a go. I think shortbread was one of the first things I ever made at school in 'domestic science'.

    1. Thank you :) I never made them in 'domestic science', in fact I don't ever remember eating them until I came to this country - I only learnt to make them a few years ago - on catch up now!
