    I have been wondering lately if you can freeze slices. You know, pieces of slice. Lol.
    Yes? No? Do you? Have you? If so, do some slices not freeze that well?

    I'm thinking of making a marshmellow rice bubble slice.

    For some reason I feel a little (actually alot ) silly asking.

    Hmm, I don't think it's a silly question!
    I freeze brownies successfully, but I think that's mainly cause they're quite cakey. I'm not sure that I'd freeze rice bubble slice though... There's only one way to find out

    Yes, you can freeze slices. When the DD's were younger and I could cook without adding to my frame, I used to make a few slices at a time the freeze mixed. Make sure the container seals well.
    It was nice to be able to pull out a container and have a variety of slices available. Especially good if you have visitors or need to take something somewhere.

    Forget trying the freeze the jelly slice

    Good bulk cookie recipe wanted!

    DP and DD are going camping tomorrow with another dad and his two girls. I want to make some (lots) of small cookies for them to take.

    Any good recipes would be gratefully received!

    Jam drops would be great:

    2 cups pl flour
    3/4 cup sugar
    125g butter
    2 level teas baking soda
    2 eggs

    Cream butter and sugar, add eggs one at a time, beating well. Add sifted flour, baking powder. Mix well. Roll into small balls and press a indent in middle. Fill with jam and bake in moderate oven for about 15 mins.

    You can pretty well use this plain mixture and add in extras for variety biscuits:

    Add in 1 cup sultanas and roll in cornflakes for cornflake bikkies
    Add in choc chips
    Add in peanuts
    Add in 1/2 cup coconut for coconut bikkies
    Put a lolly/freckle on top of each one

    Hope this helps!

    Atop the lookout...

    Monte Carlo type Biscuit recipe

    Does anyone have a recipe for biscuits that are as similar as possible to the biscuits used to make monte carlos? I don't seem to have a recipe that is crisp enough, or is simply too crisp. I have just read through all twenty two pages in this thread, with no luck. Except to now be super hungry for sugary slices, etc. Thank you!

    This is DS's fave biscuit at the moment...ok, mine too no added sugar, dairy free, freeze really well and last awhile on the bench. They're really forgiving so you can overlook and they're still great. And you can substitute ingredients for others depending on what you have... I added ground flaxseeds today. And you can make them nut free for lunch boxes.

    Healthier Choc Chip Bikkies

    Preheat oven to 160 degrees.

    Combine together in a bowl:
    1 3/4 cups Wholemeal SR Flour
    1/2 cup oats
    1/3 cup coconut
    3 tbs sesame seeds
    1/4 cup flaked almonds
    1/4 cup choc chips

    1/2 cup honey
    1/4 cup hot water
    1/2 cup rice bran oil
    1 egg

    Add wet ingredients to dry. Mix to combine. Drop spoonfuls onto baking tray and press down a little.
    Bake for 15 minutes. Makes approx 30.
