I have joined Judith’s Early Bird Christmas Crafting…here is my Journal to record my progress…..I have tried raw edge appliquĂ© on some leftover stitcheries from Christmas (Among the Gum Trees) a bit more practice, but I think I could get to like this…..and bit of cross hatching, one of my new covered buttons.. and I have a cover...……and if you haven’t already joined up for this new venture, why not pop over and have a look at Judith’s blog..

Recipe for “Caramel Date Walnut Slice”

1.5  cups Plain Flour – 125g melted butter – 1 cup brown sugar firmly packed – 1 egg lightly beaten – 1/2 teaspoon bi-carb soda – 1/2 cup cream – 1/2 cup chopped dates – 1 cup walnut pieces

Sift flour stir in melted butter, stir in sugar, press half the mixture into a greased 20cm x 30cm pan, bake in a moderate oven for approx 12 mins…cool..combine remaining mixture with the sifted bi-carb, egg, cream, dates and nuts – mix well pour over base, bake for a further 25mins or until just firm…sour cream can also be used instead of the cream…….enjoy……
