I just adore the autumn. Falling leaves, nights closing in and pumpkin. Oh, the autumnal taste of pumpkin. I’m not fussy if it’s from a tin or freshly pureed, as long as I get it in my porridge, biscuits and pies.
Oxo Good Grips kindly sent me this hand held mixer to try out and it couldn’t have come at a better time. My electric whisk broke – tragedy for an avid baker. But this one has been absolutely great because, since it’s quiet, I’ve been able to bake in the afternoon during nap time. My daughter can be a light sleeper and I’ve been known to use the electric mixer with an extension lead in the garden so as not to wake her. But now I can mix away in the afternoon!
These biscuits are soft and oaty with crunchy hazelnuts and light spices. Very autumnal, very easy to make, and certainly moreish. Perfect for a late afternoon treat, bundled on the sofa with a mug of Earl Grey.
Disclosure: Oxo Good Grips sent me the hand held mixer to review. I was not required to write a positive review and all opinions expressed are my own.
