Weekend Cooking is a chance to share the food love and is hosted by Beth Fish Reads. On Saturday mornings, publish your post — perhaps a cookbook review or maybe just some favorite food-related quotes.
Make sure to leave a link, so we can read what you have to say. I hope you’ll join in when your weekend (or recent) reading or movie watching fits in with the theme. Remember, the definition of Weekend Cooking is free and easy, if you think your post even remotely fits the theme, grab the button and sign in to Mr. Linky.
This is another new recipe that I’ve tried recently from the 30-Minute Vegetarian by Joanna Farrow. My husband likes this biscuit/cookie because it’s not too sweet. I’m quite fond of them too.
CHUNKY OAT COOKIES
125g/4 oz butter, softened
125g/4 oz caster sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
125g/4 oz porridge oats
4 tablespoons sunflower seeds
150g/5 oz plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
175g/6 oz white chocolate, chopped into small pieces
Beat the butter and sugar in a bowl until creamy. Add the egg, vanilla, oats, sunflower seeds, chocolate then add the flour and baking powder. Mix together.
Place dessertspoonfuls of mixture on a greased baking tray and flatten slightly. Bake in a pre-heated oven 180C (350F) Gas Mark 4 for about 15 minutes until risen and golden. Leave to cool on the tray for five minutes then transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling.
1. I also added dried cranberries to mine. You could add raisins or other dried fruit if preferred.
2. If you prefer milk or dark chocolate use that instead of the white chocolate.
3. This biscuit really did take 30 minutes to prepare and cook.
