I bought this little gem of a book because since I was diagnosed with Coeliac Disease 3 years ago I've hated nearly every gluten free biscuit or cake I've bought. There is only one exception, but it's purchase price is so inflated, for what it is, the situation pushed me into the kitchen to start baking.
These biscuits are delicious and easy peasy. I like my bickies quite plain, so I don't faff about with frosting, icing, drizzled or dipped in chocolate, etc. I can hardly believe I've successfully made, amaretti, passionfruit cookies, greek almond biscuits and my favourites so far, the orange polenta biscuits.
There is an interesting section of biscotti, the dry hard things in jars in coffee shops. They look very interesting. You make a dough, bake it like a small artisan loaf, slice it and then bake the slices. Dunkers!
I haven't strayed into the brownie section, my waistline forbids such indulgences. I'm a bit of a strange old bird, a woman who doesn't particularly like chocolate! But if I did, they look delicious. I might make some to give away over Christmas.
There are 28 recipes, each photographed, you can't go wrong. Altogether, I'm likely to use and eat 15 which is a high proportion of use of any cookery manual (It's mainly the 8 choc/brownie ones I'm avoiding.) Lastly there is a very good conversion chart of measures, dry measures, liquids, lengths and oven temperatures. Very handy since I've erroneously bought a USA edition of a Nigella cookbook! I'm sure I'm not the only one who's done this and now I know where to look.
