Beth's Bushwalker Bickies

Ok, I'm a little late on this one. This is for the June Recipe Box Swap at I have to say. There wasn't a theme this month, so it was easy to choose a recipe.

I had an unusually quiet Thursday evening and I spent it baking biscuits and reading the newspaper. Nothing exceptional in the paper, but I managed to finish the sudoku. What was exceptional was how these biscuits turned out. They are sweet, but not too sweet, and a little bit nutty tasting. They have a wonderful, slightly chewy texture but the cornflakes and oats make them a bit crunchy at the same time. I think could happily polish off the whole batch on my own.

Beth's Bushwalker Biscuits
1/2 cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp water
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup dates, chopped
3/4 cup wholemeal self raising flour
1/2 cup plain self raising flour
1 cup Carman's rolled oats
1 cup cornflakes
1/2 cup coconut

Preheat oven to 120-140°C (these cookies are very high in sugar and will burn easily). Grease baking tray.
Blend margarine and sugar together. Mix in egg, water and vanilla essence until combined.
Mix through dates, then the remaining ingredients.
Roll into balls then flatten on the tray. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Allow to cool on a wire rack.

Makes 25-30 (I got 26 in the batch I made, but I think there would have been more if I hadn't eaten the dough... it was so yummy)

It cannot really have success, I suppose so.

This will not succeed in fact, that's what I suppose.
