I'm trying to keep my business, my triplets, and my waistline under control. I excel at one of those, fail at another one of those, and one is a work in progress. Which is which is day dependant.

RAS Recipe of the Week

Don't be put off by the fact that these biscuits are made in a food processor - when was the last time you dragged that thing out of the dark depths of your cupboards? This recipe is a great excuse to give it an airing. I originally got this recipe from the Super Food Ideas magazine - a great place to get all sorts of good sharing recipes! Anyway, do a winter good deed and bake these for someone - then sit and eat them together with a glass of milk. Yummmmo!!

Spiced Honey Biscuits
Yield: 40
2 cups self raising flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
1 Tablespoon mixed spice
2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup caster sugar
125g cold butter, cubed
1/2 cup honey
1 cup demerara sugar

Preheat oven to 200C. Line 3 baking trays with baking paper. Warm the honey in a small pot over a low flame, just to heat warm and make runny. Meanwhile, sift flour, bicarb mixed spice and ginger into the food processor. Process for 30 seconds. Add cater sugar and pulse for 20 seconds. Add butter and pulse until mixture resembles bread crumbs. With food processor running, pour warm honey down the tube and process until a soft dough forms. Place demerara sugar in a bowl. Roll biscuit dough into walnut sized balls and roll in demerara sugar to coat. Place on lined trays, leaving room for spreading. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until biscuits are golden and tops are cracked. Stand on trays for 10 minutes and then cool on a wire rack.

Thanks for the recipe - easy peasy to make - wish more were (I heart my food processor). DH was dubious about spicy honey but is now a convert!
