    4 Ingredient recipes

    Howdy, does anyone use these books? I have both of them and just tried a beaut recipe from the 2nd book. It uses puff pastry, strawberry jam, whipped cream and icing sugar.



    Thaw out pastry sheet and roll out the pastry with rolling pin, ***** everywhere with a fork pop back into fridge for 15 mins. Then bake on both sides 8 mins each.

    Then cut into 4 slices longways, spread one with jam, the other with cream. put together like a sandwich and add icing sugar on top.

    So yummy, I ate most of it...

    Yeah in every good book shop. each book is about 20 bucks. The recipe is called matchsticks i think, in the red book (2nd one)... Have also made a pineapple cake using just 4 ingredients with condensed milk for icing. Yum.

    The Boy's Mum has one of these books, and the Boy cooks from it sometimes (at his Mum's house), and they both like them very much. I haven't got them, but have been meaning to look at them, maybe in the library first..

    Very, very worthwhile investment. Grabbed mine for about $15.

    If you have foxtel, the lifestyle channel have the two ladies whom wrote the recipies hosting their own show, and making dishes outta the books. Im more inspired when i watch the show than read the books.

    Ive got V1.....i know there is a V2 (red cover) but im no where near getting thru V1 yet LOL.....
