|Chocolate Chip Biscuits
Because I always find myself looking for a recipe.
3/4 cup sugar (brown if available)
1 cup nut meal
3/4 cup plain flour
1.5 tsp baking powder
200g chocolate chips
1/2 cup+ nuts (walnuts or pecans?)
Oven at 180, cook for about 14 minutes.

Inspired by mont_joye, (and the cheap good strawberries available months earlier than I'm used to) made jam this evening.
~80-100ml lime juice
I'm not used to needing to use extra pectin, but I wasn't getting a set at all. Worried it'll be too solid - will see tomorrow.

Oven at 180oC
3/4 cup sugar (I think we eventually did half this)
- melt in double boiler, stir until well combined.
90g figs (~7)
120g slivered almonds (inclined to think we doubled this)
40g pecans (think we doubled this too - probably 100g)
Chop cranberries and figs (~ currant sized), mix fruit and nuts all together, and toss with
2tbs of flour (30g)
Take pan off heat, stir in
pinch of salt
2 tbsp double cream
Stir all together, make into little biscuits, or a slice, or whatever seems to work. USE SILICON BAKING MATS. The sugar/butter combination forms a penetrating, potent cement in conjunction with baking paper.
Aldi 40% 200g block + 2 x 70-80% 100g blocks seems to be the right ratio of chocolate (1:1).
Trying to have a kid put on further hold since the ectopic in November; did our karyotyping bloodtests today. + 6 weeks.
