First, I promised you the English Melting Biscuit recipe and I'm sorry I didn't have it out there yesterday.
English Melting Biscuits
yield: 24 biscuits
1/2 cup soft butter
3/8 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
1 cup self-rising flour
2 tbs corn starch
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 cup rolled oats
Preheat oven to 375, grease cookie sheets (I use parchment paper)
Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla extract. Sift together flour, cornstarch, and salt; stir into butter mixture. Shape dough into 20 to 24 balls about 1/2 inch in diameter. Roll each ball in the oats and place about 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool on wire rack. Store in airtight container.
Now, onto the present. I spent the day in my bathroom. No, I wasn't sick, thank goodness! I was cleaning...Olympic style! I scrubbed everything! I even washed the windows and hung some clean curtains, wiped down cobwebs (yes, there were some). Washed everything in my little hutch which means taking everything out of it...little bottles and supplies and put it all back. I vacuumed and scrubbed the floor on my hands and knees and I think I qualified for the final heat which is my bedroom! LOL!
See the little embroidery of a squirrel hanging above the heater? Nancy Jo sent that to me a few years ago. she was one of my first "blogging buddies" and still is. I have yet to return the favor but I am going to! I have ideas brewing in my head! Nancy Jo does beautiful embroidery work. I love that little squirrel!
