Baking and sweater progress!

Today being boxing day is the night of my friends and i's annual night out, altho we have nights out at other times of the year we always go out on boxing night. The actual out going is preceded by present exchange and general snackery as such i have baked for the occasion

First i made festive biscuits, from the Nigella Lawson recipe on bbc site that is here bit over done but meh

I also made mince pies, well mince crumbles really, to my friends mums recipe I'm sure she wont mind me sharing:

250g butter

200g suger

1 egg

drop vanilla essence

500g self raising flour


icing sugar for dusting

Cream together butter and sugar til smooth add egg and vanilla essence and beat together. Add half the flour and mix. Add remaining flour and work with a fork til breadcrumby, dont over mix. Put a desert spoon of the mix in a paper case the a teaspoonful of mince meat and top with another desert spoon of crumbley mix. Bake in an oven heated to about 180 C for 10 mins til golden brown. Cool then sprinkle with icing sugar.
