This week at the Cygnet Market….Fathers Day Nut biscuits.

We’d like to share a great recipe and give away some freshly baked nut biscuits for Fathers’ Day at this Cygnet Market.

All customers who buy hazelnuts, walnuts or pistachios will receive a free (hazelnut, walnut or pistachio) nut biscuit (for Fathers’ Day) and they can  make these great little biscuits with the recipe below from Kate’s mum, Jean.

Nut Biscuits Recipe:

Combine and cream together the following:

250 grams butter,  1 tablespoon vanilla essence,  1/2 cup of icing sugar.

Add 3/4 cup chopped nuts, two cups Four Leaf 85% Light Flour.

Roll into balls and press down on greased baking trays.

Bake for approx 20 minutes at 180 C.

What else do we have at the Cygnet Market this weekend?  Firstly, we now have plenty of cane bread proofing baskets.  These are just $22 and that’s a very good price!

We have been working on our Dukkah range and we will have a new flavour for people to try and buy;

Roasted Hazelnut and Long Pepper.

Of course, we always have a range of Four Leaf products  – including the wonderful 85% Light Flour, ideal for making sourdough bread and pastry and pancakes, nut biscuits! – just about everything.  We also have Rye Flour (for feeding sourdough starter), Rolled Oats, Spelt Flour, Soup Mix, Chick Pea Flour, Split Peas, Cracked Wheat and Muesli Base from Four Leaf Organic Milling.
