Jolly jammers. Jolly good.

April 19, 2010




Last night I decided I would try make one of my most favourite biscuits – jolly jaaaaaaaaaaaammers. Flip I can freet these things day in and day out. I followed a recipe in a book that shane bought me called “Bake”. Its a wonderful book filled with things that make you wish that your job was to lie flat on your back and eat all day while watching endless episodes of 30 Rock.

The recipe is below, the dough was a bit tricky to work with, just use some flour to deactivate the stickiness and get your sanity back. they turned out really well… I didn’t have a heart shaped cookie cutter, so I used a baby squirrel cutter to make the shape in the middle, not sure if you can see that that’s what it is ha. oh well…. let me know if you make any and how they come out.


I’m going to have a jolly jammer now while i sip tea out my fancy pale mint green teacup that I bought in Port Alfred… I only bought one cup/saucer/cake plate, wish I could of bought the whole lot, but it was too much cash monies. I did however snap up the cake platter too, it was my most favourite piece and it was onlyR50. Ok got to go, can’t drink, eat and internets at the same time. Enjoy your Monday xxxxx

    glad to hear that you biscuits came out fine.
    i tried another biscuit recipe from the same book – ginger & macadamian.
    the recipe was also a little tricky and didn’t turn out anything like the picture but they were still yummy.
    maybe the recipe needs some tweaking for joburg?
