homemade oreos

These are easy, delicious and the recipe worked well with gluten free substitutes. I came across the recipe through the black apple who found it via smitten kitchen who adapted the recipe from this book by Wayne Brachman. I used the sugar quantities that Emily used as I like my cookies a wee bit chewy too. I also only used butter for the filling instead of shortening. We didn't have quite enough icing sugar in the house so my filling is a little soft but oh so good! (and easy enough to spread with just the back of a spoon)

It has been 4 or 5 years since I had a real oreo and these homemade ones seem to taste very close to my memory of the real deal!

so little time

This time last week I was at Markit in Federation Square with a stall next to the creative duo from so little time. Take a peek at their website to see more hand painted, laser cut lovelies.

I have a quirky habit of acquiring little collections of odd items like these electricity insulators. Anything with numbers or letters printed or stamped onto it grabs my immediate attention. There 21 in total and I only want to keep 2 or 3 so if anyone out there is interested please contact me. Prices start at $5.
