Rose tinted spectacles

‘Rose tinted spectacles cookies’

This recipie is a variation on Dream cookies, a recipie I found in an old WI cookery book. Perfect for when you’re feeling a little blue and need comfort food!

5oz plain flour                                                                                                    

4oz soft unsalted butter

3oz caster sugar

1/2tsp baking powder

1-2 drops of rosewater

Preheat oven to Gas Mark 4/180c/350f

  • Cream the butter and sugar (I do all of this in the food processor).
  • Mix the flour and baking powder and add to the butter and sugar and blend.
  • Add the rosewater – blend  – it should form a dough.
  • Roll the dough into small balls (I usually make 12) and place on a greased baking tray
  • Cook for 15 – 20mins or until they are pale golden
  • Serve with a pot of tea, pyjamas and a boxset of Friends – you’ll be feeling better in no time!

And to get you feeling rosy here’s a fabulous treasury from Vintage by Rachel featuring ‘Love me do’ by Ginger Tea

With gems like these beautiful stud earrings it’s the perfect place to find unique, romantic jewelry.
