Miss B Making Moon Kisses

Week 29 and Miss B is doing some baking and guess what, here's the recipe...

Moon Kisses
Cream together 180g butter and 125ml sugar. Beat in 1 egg and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add sifted ingredients: 250ml flour, 125ml cornflour, 125ml custard powder, 2.5ml baking powder and 1ml salt. Mix well, position small teaspoonsful on a greased baking sheet, bake at 200 degrees C for 7 to 10 minutes. Let cool, store in air tight container.

I thought they were rather nice, especially if you leave them till tomorrow to age and develop flavour..
Anyway, the painting is in acrylic and oils on a 255 x 255 x 15mm stretched canvas and on auction for a week and a bit. Thanks for watching this blog... E^) Sold
