This has been rather an amazing year, what with leaping back in to illustration (after quite a too-long break) by coming up with an idea of drawing graphic recipes for my university-bound son... and actually having it printed as a booklet in the summer.
To celebrate, and to thank the many people who gave me their enthusiastic support and encouragement along the way -- not to mention all those who then bought the finished product! -- I'm offering my slightly time-consuming but utterly delicious favourite Christmas biscuits to anyone who would like to download the recipe and make them.
Note: my plan was, and is, to do this recipe in colour but technical difficulties have put a stop to that for right now. Do check back and see if I've done it in the next couple of days, though!
In the meantime, if you'd like to download a pdf of this black and white version, click here. Enjoy! And thank you!
I'm happy to see this has just come out in the town magazine Viva Lewes. That potato salad - based on my mother's way of doing it - is a really good one, even for people who say they don't like potato salad. By the way, if you want to make it like my mum's recipe, just add some chopped apple. My boys objected strongly to this (although they love apples) so this is our version.
