Recipe – Melting Moments

Yesterday, I made potato wedges, coating the pieces of (par boiled) potato in egg white, oil and spices before putting them in a hot oven until crispy. Using the egg white really adds to the crunch, but what to do with just one left-over egg yolk?

Melting Moments

4oz soft margarine or butter
3oz caster sugar
1 egg yolk
5oz self-raising flour
crushed cornflakes
glacé cherry halves

Preheat the oven to 180C

Cream the sugar and fat together, then beat in the egg yolk. Stir in the flour until you have a stiff dough. Drop heaped teaspoons of the mixture onto a plate of crushed cornflakes, and roll into a ball – ensure they are well coated with the crumbs.

Place well apart on a prepared baking tray (use baking parchment or silicon). Top each with a cherry half, flattening slightly.

Bake for 15mins. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 3-5mins before transferring to a cooking rack. Makes 12-15.

    Our original hen keeping adventure came to an end in January 2013, when a fox took our entire brood of hens. But don’t let that put you off … you can find the story at The Hen House Archive where there are still lots of stories, photos, and information about keeping hens I hope you'll find useful.

    July 2018 … Four new girls arrive, two LS bantams and two Mille Fleur Pekins.

    June 2018 … We had an extended heatwave, with daily temperatures in the 30s.
