Lemony Biscuity Treats

In my spare time, I like to cook. I don't get much of a chance these days, and I am trying to be good, but I do love a good cake or biscuit. Being gluten free makes this a little harder, and finding recipes that work can sometimes be a bit tricky. But here's a recipe I created recently that was so easy and tasted great!

Little Lemony biscuity treats...

200g Butter
100g Caster Sugar
1 Egg yolk
1 Tablespoon of Milk
Grated rind of a lemon
200 g Rice flour
75 g Ground Almonds

Throw all the ingredients into the food processor and whiz.

Then, using a teaspoon, measure out a good spoon full and roll into balls. Place on baking trays lined with parchment paper and flatten slightly with the back of a spoon. Pop into a preheated 180 C oven and bake for about 15 mins, or until golden. Remove and leave to cool on the paper.

Getting Crafty

In between getting everything ready for the new website and relaunch, and looking after a baby, I've still somehow managed to find the time to be a bit creative too.

My most recent crochet project was a small clutch for my friend and wonderful silversmith, Anna Varendorff.
My mum bought a sewing machine for me for Christmas (not sure what she was trying to say) - I hadn't sewn since high school! But after a quick night course at The Make Lounge I'm getting back into the swing of it. I whipped up this change bag and mat for Milly in a jiffy the other evening.
