    Ursula, Netix' ones sound great... If you're going to make those, make mine with white and dark choc chips instead

    ETA: Sorry, just remembered the reason you're making is cause you've got heaps of jam LOL! They are good with jam too.

    Talking Caramel Tarts.....

    Okay I have found a recipe for Caramel Tarts and it says to use already prepared tart cases from the shops but I don't have any and couldn't be bothered going down to the shops again today so I am going to make them!!

    Does anybody have a good tart case recipe??

    No I dont sorry but if you happen to have some ginger nut biscuits in the house you can use these. Just get a muffin tray and lay one biscuit on top of each muffin hole and pop into a moderate oven until the biscuits "melt" into the hole (I think about 10 minutes). Take the tray out of the oven and leave until the biscuits become hard again. Take out of the tray and fill with the caramel. Very easy and very delicious!

    Heres a biscuit pastry receipe from the common sense cookery book:

    125g Butter
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup self- raising flour
    1 1/2 cups plain flour
    1 egg

    1. Cream butter and sugar
    2. Add egge and beat well
    3. Add sifted flours
    4. Knead lightly
    5. Roll out to size and shape required
    6. Bake in a moderate oven 180 degrees for approx 20 minutes.

    I havent used that one before but ive used another one in that book to make pastry for pies and it was yummmmo!

    Okay I ended up making Choc-Caramel Slice.

    The caramel was just 30g butter, 2 tbsp of golden syrup and a can of condensed milk!! Put all in a sauce pan and bring to a simmer continously stirring. Make sure you stir cause I burnt mine so it had little specals through it but still tasted real good!!

    We just boil a can of condensed milk for 2 hours ..... voila! Done. Some people think it is dangerous to boil a can but my Nana had been doing this for 40 odd years and we have been doing it for over 10 years and never had any problems. Just cover the can with a tea towel while opening it with a can opener when it is finished.

    Thats the same caramel recipe i use for Caramel Slice mmmm..
    the base is 1 cups brown suger, 1 cup self raising flour, 1 cup coconut and 125g melted butter. Mix and put into foil lined lamington tin, bake for 15 mins 180 degrees, melt the caramel the same as you have, put it on top of cooked base, cook for a further 10 minutes in oven, allow to cool then cover with melted dark chocolate and allow to set! mmmmmmm its the best caramel slice ever! DH eats it all in 2 days!!
