I thought that I would move a little away from the bread aspect and try my hand at some cookies, with a mincemeat twist.
On the Internet, I found a recipe and amended it slightly (as you do) to take into account the ingredients I actually had in the house.
The mix looked good,
and was made into cookie shapes,

and put into the fridge for 30 minutes to settle the butter.
I baked at 180 degrees for about 10 minutes,
and they looked like this. Now I do have "issues" with biscuits, they come out of the oven soft and semi-liquid, and I always have that feeling that I haven't cooked them long enough. Although these were starting to brown round the edges.
I tend to pace up and down till they cool and solidify, as if by magic. I guess it comes from being more used to Bread being solid when it is cooked.
So I made a coffee and tried to be patient.
But it was worth it.
