I made biscuits at the weekend. Chocolate and pistachio, since you asked. I adapted an old Nigel Slater recipe for soft chocolate cookies - find the original version here. Alas, no hazelnuts were to be found in my local supermarket, so I had to improvise. (I do love a pistachio and I rather like the flash of green you end up with too - like little broken jewels in the mud.) Absolute bliss with a glass of cold milk on a Sunday afternoon. The recipe makes 12 'large cookies', but by (happy) accident, I made 6 enormous ones instead. Suffice it to say, they'd all disappeared by lunchtime on Monday.
