Mother's Day Treats...

Walnut Crumble Biscuits 
- homemade by daffodils & snowdrops

Why not treat your mum this Mothers Day to some yummy home baking!..

I love these 'Walnut Crumble' biscuits from the 'Great British Bake Off' cookery book...

I decided to adapt the recipe slightly by adding some finely chopped dates...
 
100g Unsalted butter
100g Caster sugar
40g Demerara sugar
1 Egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
250g Self raising flour
50g Chopped nuts
35g Dates

Mix the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl... then beat the egg with vanilla and mix into the butter mixture...
 
Sift the flour into the bowl and mix... then add the chopped nuts and dates...

Once mixed well, divide the mixture into approximately 24 balls and place on a lightly greased baking tray (with ample spacing)...
 
Flatten the balls slightly with the back of a fork... and sprinkle a few left over chopped nuts/dates on the top and press in...

Bake at 160°c (fan oven) for about 10minutes until golden brown...

Then leave the biscuits to cool and firm up on a wire rack... and enjoy!..
 
Happy Mothers Day!..
