Biscuits, Pastry and Slices

By rights, this should be my biggest section, because I make biscuits all the time and for everyone.  The trouble is, of course, I tend to make the same ones again and again, because they are comforting and friendly and there is nobody who hates my choc-chip and oatmeal cookies.  Worse still – and highly unusually, I might add – when I make biscuits, I also tend to follow recipes for them (mostly), which means I can’t post the recipes here without being a Bad Copyright Catherine.  And nobody wants that.

Clearly, my next mission must be to invent more biscuit recipes and bake a lot of biscuits.  How my colleagues and friends will suffer…

Edited to add: And then in March 2015 I made almond biscuits for Purim.  And they were super easy, so I started varying the nuts and the flavours.  And now I have something like ten fifteen different kinds of gluten-free biscuits, all basically the same recipe, because I am lazy and there is nothing better than a lazy gluten-free biscuit recipe.  Unless you can’t eat nuts, in which case, try one of the other recipes on this page…
