We continue to be quite busy, and yesterday we sat down together with our diaries to plan a few things. My favourite receptionist at the Ricky Grant (chemo) unit is leaving, and I really wanted to go in and see her before she went, and today is the best day for us both. Not wanting to go in empty-handed, and miss the opportunity to give the chemo-ites a bit of a treat, I realised I didn’t have a great deal of time to do any baking, so ended up doing it last night, finishing in the small hours of today!
Last time I was there, a couple of the chemo-ites refused my cakes because they had diabetes, so I decided I should always provide a choice of sweet and savoury, so this time I made two batches of biscuits, one of cheese and the other cinnamon.
Here are the cheese ones being made.
Here they are, straight out of the oven.
Then I made the cinnamon biscuits.
This mixture was a lot softer and more difficult to handle. It was also a lot more sensitive to the oven temperature and length of cooking, and I’m afraid I rather overcooked the first batch!
Here are the completed biscuits ready to go.
I took out the ones that were most overdone or misshapen ones.
I wish Emma well in her new job – when I go in to the Ricky Grant Unit from now on, I shall really miss seeing her.
