How can I be so sure? I taped the receipt inside the box! It cost DM19.50...now, I cant remember if that was expensive or not...what I do know is that I used the biscuit press over many many years.
It seems naive and fanciful to expect anything to last that long nowadays.
AU 49.95 (overpriced), appears to be fancier. It has it's own box and is sleek in black and silver. It works just fine but it doesn't have the charm the Gerda one had.
I have been asked a few times for the recipe I use in my biscuit press biscuits, so here it is:
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and spices. Sift in the flour, fold in the nut meal.
This year I have started making an effort to write down recipes that I watched my mother and other women bake so that I can pass it on to my DDs.
Cooking seems to be very fashionable at the moment, and it seems to me that lot of traditional recipes have been tweaked so much that it is hard to get the real thing when you go looking for it.
Also, there are recipes which I always had in my head and knew off by heart....which I have now forgotten ...and a few that I have misplaced.
One of these was Bear Paws.
