Cinnamon And Vanilla Biscuits

As soon as I read the recipe for healthy gingernut biscuits on Dannii’s blog I knew I had to make them. But they had far too much ginger in them for me and so I decided to adjust the spices and make cinnamon and vanilla biscuits. These kept fantastically well and went down a treat in the afternoon with our espresso.

I love new toys and gadgets and as soon as I got my iPad I started playing around. I found Siri and discovered that she is very clever indeed. All I had to do was open a document and use her speech recognition to dictate my blog posts. I thought this was brilliant as it would save me the time of actually typing out my thoughts. But what I did not know at the time is that this app uses data. Non fixed line data is very expensive in South Africa unless you have a contract. I have very limited data at home so I cannot make use of this awesome tool as much as I would like to. I am back to having to type up my posts which is not the end of the world.

However, I usually come up with things to talk about while I am driving. Not that I would be able to dictate while navigating my car on the road, as both take a lot of concentration. What I really need is for someone to come up with an app that transcribes my thoughts for me! That would work really well as I often ‘write’ blog posts in my head while trying to fall asleep at night. What also works very well are these biscuits as you can change the spices to suit your own tastes, without affecting the crunch.

  1. Tandy – you might not have to wait long on that app – just the other day I saw that a new app that can “see through walls” was getting ready to be released as well as one that detects body odor! Insane eh?!
    BTW – these cinnamon vanilla cookies sound delightful – and would be awesome with my cup of coffee!

  2. Love the ingredients list for these cookies/biscuits. They sound so healthy yet hearty! I love the cinnamon flavor 🙂

  3. I definitely want someone to make an app that transcribes my thoughts for me too! Love these biscuits, they look delicious. Bloglovin is not updating your feed, last one was April 20th?

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
