|I first shared a link to these candied bacon & chic chip biscuits on Facebook last year. Can't believe it's taken me this long to post my trial, but I have been a little busy ;-).|
|The original recipe is here, and it's been so long since I made them I can't remember what changes I made *sigh*.|
I do remember candying the bacon for breakfast, planning to make them for morning tea. And when that didn't work we ended up with soggy bacon :-(
|I also remember this was the first time I tried this neat trick to separate eggs! I think I first saw it on Youtube, but I seriously couldn't tell you which version I saw first.|
|Squeeze some air out of your plastic bottle, place it over your yolk. . .|
|. . . release the bottle. . .|
|. . . and watch the yolk gutted sucked up! I've done this a few times now and I've not had a single issue with split yolks!|
|Then simply squeeze to release the yolk where it's needed.|
|You can see a little white still sticks to the yolk, but, really. . .|
|. . . I'm not going to complain. This is a simple and fun technique that even the little ones can help with :-)|
|Back to the recipe. I haven't made that many batches of biscuits/cookie in my time. Something I'm sure is going to change. This is the texture I ended up with|
|I made the blobs and didn't bother trying to make them pretty.|
|Some I added carmel centred Kisses to . . . hmmmm. . . caramel Kisses. . .|
|And here's another close up of the plain chic chip ones.|
|This is how they turned out.|
|They do look delicious don't they! Admittedly they could have done with a few more minutes in the oven, but that's me liking the crunchy bits.|
|Which I made sure I and on the caramel Kiss ones.|
A strange combination, and very rich. We haven't made these again, but one day perhaps.
|This is what I did with my spare egg white rather than making some meringue|
|Miss M has decided she prefers the whites, and these looked kind of cute baked in a silicon mould I thought.|
We are gearing up for our first day at Kindy this week! Are you enjoying your last week of school holidays or heading back early?
