EGS made some rather tasty ginger cookies using this recipe http://www.recipecommunity.com.au/baking-sweet-recipes/ginger-nut-biscuits/107492 He made these himself, asking for advice when he wasn't sure.
And then the next day, he made "shortbread biscuits" from the My Way Of Cooking book. He made this without any supervision at all, although he did ask a few questions on the way. I'm finding MWOC a bit hit and miss, the instructions aren't detailed enough for a newbie. We found this hopeless for cutting out cookies. We considered using a shorbtread mould, but I was concerened it would just stick,
In the end EGScame up with the bright idea of just making them like we had done the ginger biscuits, a small ball, fork pressed down. We ended up cooking these for about 17 minutes.. They were very good, but the centres were a bit underbaked.
I might use this recipe again, but I'd probably try a couple of others first.
The weekend's thermomixing was finished with a couple of jugs of passata.
And I can report that day-old brownie was even better than fresh brownie. For me, anyway/
