We came across Cookies, a recipe book by Woman’s Weekly, in the local bookstore and bought the book to try out their recipe for Latte Squares. They turned out lovely, with a texture that is almost-crispy and almost-chewy at the same time. This is a biscuit that begs to be made in the shape of a medium-sized bear, so that is what we did.

It is not easy to describe a frozen Peppermint Crisp tart. You can think of it as crunchy, mint ice cream, or as peppermint ice cake, or as slices or heaven, or perhaps slices of pure evil. It depends on your point of view. Perhaps you should try it and see for yourself.
This is an old fashioned recipe, which Marietjie loves. Her mom used to bake these biscuits, with the help of a cookie press, in large batches, but Marietjie adapted it for a smaller, family-sized batch.
Cinnamon sugar biscuits, also known as Snickerdoodle cookies, have been around for a long time. They are simple but addictive, which means that although they keep well for 10 to 14 days when stored in a tin, they are unlikely to last for more than a day or two in a house of cinnamon lovers.
