Last week a friend of mine popped by for a visit and to cuddle Little Miss Perfect and brought us a whole bag full of baked goodies from The Wee Bakehouse in Dalkeith. Brownies, tray bakes, soda bread and Empire biscuits. Actually she brought one of each goodie and we cut them in half so that we could try a little bit of everything...except the Empire Biscuits. She brought two of those. She has a bit of a weakness when it comes to Empire Biscuits and...well...there was no way she was going to share (I don't blame her).
This week Little Miss Perfect is 2 months old and because I am determined to celebrate every month with something sweet I thought I'd try my hand at making some Empire Biscuits. I used James Morton's recipe and it couldn't have been easier.
I filled the biscuits with rhubarb and ginger jam and put a dollop of really thick icing on top, instead of completely covering them. Of course I had to make mummy and mini sized, it wouldn't be fair if I didn't.
