A very good friend bought me my favourite Earl Grey tea bags and my favourite type of biscuits ( all-butter sultana cookies) for Christmas this year. When I ripped open the wrapping paper on Christmas morning, my first thoughts were of disappointment - tea bags and biscuits? And a brand with which I'm not even familiar, Ringtons! I put them away and put on a fake smile when I thanked her.
A few days ago I was feeling a bit fed-up with my post-Christmas diet, and had a bit of a rampage through the cupboards, looking for something naughty to cheer me up. All I could find was the packet of cookies I had been so disappointed with, so I decided to give them a go, grudgingly! While I was about it I thought I would pair them with a cup of my new earl grey, just so I would say I had tried it!
I wasn't expecting much, but the very first bite into the meltingly-short cookie changed everything!! They are gorgeous!! They're so very buttery, with enough sultanas even for greedy me! They crumble into the most deliciously rich crumbs, and I kept going back for another then another, unable to stop!! They taste like homemade, the very best homemade, and they remind me poignantly of my beloved grandmother, the best baker I have ever known! Nan would have been proud to have made these - are you quite sure you aren't using her recipe??!
The tea was lovely too, very fresh and perfumed, and went down very well indeed with those angelic cookies! I am going to have to place an order myself, for next time I fall off the diet wagon!
I recently received a sample of luxury shower gel in orange and mint fragrance and it feels very luxurious to use, with a long-lasting fragrance, and leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized.
