Baking bikkies

I have been baking biscuits tonight to take to work tomorrow for a birthday party.

As always when such occasions arise I pull out my trusty 1977 Australian Women's Weekly Biscuit and Slice cookbook.

I must admit for years I have actually been cooking the same one or two recipes but lately I have been lashing out. Apart from my old favourites: vanilla biscuits which are perfect for choc chip cookies or jam drops and to die for florentines, I have recently tried two slices:  raspberry/coconut and passionfruit.

Tonight I made orange coconut biscuits, rolled in sugar before baking. Oh yum! I wish I could convey to you the smell as they came out of the oven. They cook in 10-15 minutes so they were quick too.

I have parcelled up a box for my work and a few for my husband's work too.  Hope you have a great week!


  1. I also have a go to cookbook, your biscuits look delish.

  2. Gotta love the Women's Weekly Cookbooks! I have a favourite of theirs (not as old I'm afraid...) and I think you learn a lot by doing the same recipes over and over... plus, I don't always have the energy to experiment in the kitchen. All I can say is your lucky workmates! grace

  3. I have to admit they went over rather well. I love my funky old cookbook. I don't go in for endorsements usually but I've never had a recipe from this book go wrong so keep your eyes out in op shops :)

  4. I'm very unadventurous with my baking too Jodie, always sticking to the same safe recipes. Most of them are actually my mums recipes that she made for me. I really need o move on.
