It started warm and sunny… but we got a dousing. Tasty foods included sardines from Billingsgate Market and assorted homemade kebabs.

cookies based on this recipe:

These cookies come out "soft". The absence of salt keeps the moisture in, which in turn requires more flour. Next time I’ll try more pudding mix (the original recipe was unclear).
Also note that I put half the standard amount of sugar, but the peanut butter and chocolate makes up for it. 🙂

cream together:
100gr melted butter (about a cup) [butter tends to pop in microwaves! Very messy…]
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 heaping tbsp peanut butter
0.5 cup white sugar (or equivalent amt of brown sugar [or a mixture of the two])

stir in:
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup chocolate chips
50gr vanilla pudding mix

Lay on ungreased cooking sheets in rounded teaspoonfulls. Preheat oven to 175C and bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool outside for an hour before storing.

Makes 45-49 cookies

Things to try: doubling the amount of the vanilla pudding mix, cooking without the turbo fan.

Recipe is from this book.

2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1 tbs olive oil
1/2 cup water

1 bunch parsley
1 clove garlic (optional)
8 oz onion
1 tomato
1 green chile
8 oz ground lamb
salt and pepper to taste
1 tbs tomato paste
1 tbs red pepper flakes (optional)

For the base, shift the flour onto a worktop. Make a well in the center and sprinkle the salt and pepper. Pour the olive oil in the well and knead into the flour. Gradually add the water, until smooth. Wrap in a damp cloth and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

For the topping, finely chop the parsley, garlic, onions, tomato and chile.

Place the lamb in a bowl. Combine with all the chopped ingredients. Season with salt and pepper Add the tomato paste and red pepper flakes. Add 2 tbs of water and knead until smooth.

Divide the base into 4 equal pieces. Roll out with a rolling pin and add 1/4 of the lamb mixture to each.

Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 10 minutes and serve.

I made a lot of changes to this, which is probably why it doesn’t look anything like the picture in the book.

First, I doubled the recipe, since I had 16 oz of ground lamb. I used premade pizza dough, about 3/4 can of diced tomatoes and half a can of diced green chiles.

This was okay, but I thought there were too many onions and not enough tomatoes, so I experimented with the second pizza.
