- cockney blonde
- My name's Alison but for reasons too long to go into I'm known as Cockney Blonde or CB for short. I've been rubber stamping for several years but now spend most of my time either knitting or crocheting. However, with the advent of a New Year I have bitten the bullet and am tackling my usually hated pastime of sewing. I've even bought 'Sewing for Dummies' to guide me on my way. I've been with my hubby Dave for 24 years and between us we have 4 kids and 5 grandkids. We also have 2 cats and a dog, the latter features as my 'photo' image. I used to be able to blog daily but these days I struggle to blog weekly. Hopefully now we are settled into our new home in the country, I can get back to a daily (well almost) update from the room I now have to share with hubby. No more personal crafting space for me!!! Thanks to all the blogs and sites I follow for all your brilliant inspiration, and thank you to everyone who finds the time to comment on my blog.

What's on My Needles and that Biscuit Recipe
Into this mixture sieve 8oz plain flour and a generous helping of cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix well.
Mix into this 5oz dried fruit and then knead thoroughly.
Now here the recipe calls for 1 egg to bind but I usually find the dough only requires a drop of milk to bind. The choice is yours.
Roll out to a thickness of about 1/4 inch on a floured board and cut into shapes.
Bake for 15 minutes in the centre of a moderate oven (325-350 F; 170/180 C; Gas Mark 3-4) until golden brown
** remember to reduce the temperature a little for a fan assisted oven.
Cool on the baking tray, store in an airtight tin.
Finally, make a well deserved cuppa and enjoy, x
