With 3 walnut trees we get a lot of nuts, so the first year we made walnut oil and last year we swapped bags of nuts for wine and honey. We had people drive from an hour north to do this, which I found odd, but when I asked, they said, there were no walnut trees in their area and one couple had even been to house in the past to collect the nuts. We loved doing this as we can offload our mountain of nuts and get goodies in return. But, we still nuts that were cracked 2 years ago, so I made these little raisin and honey biscuits. The recipe only used a sprinkling on the top but it’s a start.
|100g butter |
100g castor sugar
1 tbsp honey
225g self-raising flour
1/2 tbsp salt
50g chopped walnuts
|Grease or line a couple of baking trays.|
Beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add the honey and the egg and beat well. Add the flour, raisins and salt and mix in well.
Make small balls of the mix, place on the baking trays then press some of the nuts onto the top. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes on Gas4/180c/350f.
