Media - baking
I made cut rounds again, but didn't bother trying to roll the dough into a cylinder and cut it and instead just ripped 60g chunks off, and they really rose up this time! I think I was just mushing them too much last time (they were totally flat). I guess they're just "rounds" now rather than "cut rounds". 😛

There's this British historian and TV presenter Ruth Goodman who's done a whole bunch of docos about life on farms during various periods in history. She did one series called "Edwardian Farm" and during it they made a thing called "cut rounds", basically like a savory scone. I found a recipe and made them, and while mine didn't rise much, they're REALLY yummy! The recipe I followed was this one: http://raspberryandchipotle.blogspot.com/2011/07/cut-rounds.html I'm not remotely a person who knows about baking so I don't know why they didn't rise (needs more baking powder maybe?), but they WERE nice and moist inside and not like hockey pucks!

I made those rosemary chocolate chunk cookies again, this time I learnt how to properly brown the butter, and HOT DAMN are they good! I screwed up the sizing of the first batch again though (have made a proper note now), and had to chop the chocolate smaller because I'd have run out!

I made chocolate butter cookies! And continued my tradition of fucking up the first batch, this time because I didn't realise they were meant to be rolled into a ball in the palm of your hand. Ah well, won't affect the flavour!

I made rosemary chocolate chunk cookies! And uh, slightly misjudged the size of the dough balls in the first batch. 😅

Aw yiss, we're going over to a friend's place for dinner tonight, she's making this DELICIOUS beef stew, so I've made a fresh batch of bread for dipping purposes, and Kristina has made chocolate butter cookies for dessert. 👌🏻
