Day 3 : Something I made #31daysinjuly

               For today's theme, we made some lovely homegrown strawberry biscuits!!

We have been growing strawberries in my daughters part of the garden, which have been happily turning different shades of red over the last few days (we have different varieties growing) As well as being very happy to help herself to the sweet fruit, I thought it would be a great idea to make something with the tasty strawberries which she has lovingly watered and cared for!!

Here is the recipe we used :

You will need:
110g unsalted butter, softened (1/2 cup, 4 oz)
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/4 cup + 2 tbsp white sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
1 1/4 cup plain flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 punnet strawberries (250g, 9 oz)
2 tbsp sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 180 C and like 2 trays with baking paper.

2. Hull the strawberries and slice them. Mix them with the 2 tablespoons of sugar and set aside.

3. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar, white sugar and vanilla until smooth and combined.
4. Add the egg, beating well.

5.Turn the mixer off, add the flour, baking soda and salt, and beat on a low speed until just incorporated.

6.Pat the strawberries dry with paper towel and very gently, stir them into the mixture.
Drop tablespoons of the dough onto the baking trays, allowing room for spreading.

7.Bake for 10-12 minutes, rotating the trays halfway through baking, until the cookies are deeply golden.

Makes 24 cookies.
