Tuesday nights

On Tuesday nights, our little quilt group gets together in each others homes. For my turn last night this is what was on offer for supper. A festive slice I wanted to try and.....
freckles, nice crunchy oaty chocolaty biscuits (cookies). Want the recipe??

FRECKLES
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
150 gms chocolate chips
1/2 cup dessicated coconut
125 gms butter
1 egg
3 teaspoons warm water
1 teaspoon vanilla essence.

  • Sift together the flour and baking soda into a bowl. Mix in sugar, rolled oats, chocolate chips and coconut
  • Melt butter and cool a little. Add the warm water, vanilla essence and egg. Mix well.Mix the wet ingredients into the dry.
  • Place large teaspoons of the mixture on a baking paper lined tray. Allow space for spreading. I use damp hands to shape and flatten.
  • Bake at 180* C for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.

With this recipe, if you don't like coconut, use 250 gms of chocolate chips. If you don't like chocolate chips, leave out and use 1 cup coconut

And looky here, the sweetest wee Dutch needlecase from the lovely Lucy. Thank you so much Lucy, even my DH said it's gorgeous!
