Chemo Biscuits

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.

01 Making the Cheese Biscuits

Here they are, straight out of the oven.

Then I made the cinnamon biscuits.

03 Making 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!

04 Cinnamon Biscuits Finished

Here are the completed biscuits ready to go.

05 Finished Biscuits

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.

  1. Wouldn't it be nice if we could help ourselves to your biscuits through the screen! That's very dedicated of you Shoshi to stay up that late to make these for the hospital. I'm sure they all appreciate it! I left an update about the Google problem on your other post, if you haven't seen it yet!
