Biscuit Workout

After my success with baking cakes I thought I would try making festive biscuits.  That may have been a mistake.  It could just be the recipe I picked but I found the dough incredibly hard to work with.  It was made with almonds, sugar, butter, and flour.  The thing this most reminded me of was crumble mix and my dough was certainly crumbly.  So crumbly that the stupid thing wouldn’t roll out without falling apart.

The biscuits also involved two layers of stars that needed sealed with a filling.  Seriously, after all the messing about with them my back aches from  leaning over the table.  Now that they are out of the oven and have cooled down I know that they taste great, but I’m not sure having 14 biscuits was worth all that effort.

    I found the same thing with the biscuits I made – tasted nice but hardly worth the effort – bought biscuits are just as good – and without the back ache!

    It never occurred to me that it would be so time consuming. I’m still tempted to try making gingerbread men as I just love Christmas things and they are very difficult to find here.
