And the baker who will today have to leave the tent is..............
I LOVE fig newtons and wanted to make my own. The Great British Bakeoff has a recipe I thought I'd try. I had to order the sugar and ginger bulbs (in syrup... ???) since they were both British.
It did not come out well. I mean it is 'biscuits' so I think it will be tasty. But I've not made cookie dough very much. This came out way too dry but I went along with it this time. I'll add some liquid if it happens again.
The sugar in the recipe will NOT make biscuits that light in color. He cheated.
Regardless, I'm out of the tent for the day.
