Sherbet Biscuits

After making my fizzy sherbet I decided to use it as a topping for a biscuit. I used a basic sugar biscuit recipe and adapted it to make these sherbet biscuits. I think they look so pretty and a great idea for a children’s birthday party.

As things stand right now, I consider myself extremely blessed. Despite not having earned any income for 4 weeks, I have a roof over my head. We have food on our table and we are healthy. In the big scheme of things, this is really what matters. For the first time since 2005 I am maintaining a strict budget. Making sure that I can keep on paying all of my bills is a priority right now. And in order to maintain that, I have stopped purchasing luxuries. I also contained my spending for three months and did not restock our cupboards. But now as I look to the future with certainty I can start replenishing toiletries and pantry items. But there has been a knock on effect to our decreased income. One of them is enjoying restaurant food.

Even though eating out is still not an option, most restaurants have opened with a delivery service. But to me, that is a luxury I just cannot justify. A portion of butter chicken from our local favourite is R125 per person, and I can buy an entire chicken for less that that. And whereas I don’t object to paying that for a main course when dining out, I cannot spend that to dine in. Not when I can make the same dish at home. And to me, the whole point of eating out is the company we are with. And the added bonus of not washing dishes! Hopefully by the time we can eat out, our income will be able to cover that expense.

  1. These look great, Tandy. I agree – so pretty, and perfect for a party. A friend has a baby shower coming up soon, I might make these to take with me!

  2. You nailed it Tandy, kids love sherbet. What cute idea for a kids birthday party. And I love how you can dress them up with cute sprinkles. Actually, I have these dinosaur sprinkles that would be so cute! Great idea!

  3. those biscuits look delicious, and I hope things return to normal for you soon and you get to enjoy a night out with someone else doing the dishes!

  4. These look like they would be hugely popular with kids, Tandy. We also haven’t eaten “out” food for three months. I am not a fan of takeout food and prefer to cook. The restaurants are now open but with my mom and Michael in our house and the big increase in infections here in Joburg, we won’t be eating out in the foreseeable future.

  5. These sound lovely, Tandy and the sherbert so easy when you know how. We also haven’t eaten out for a few months now and although restaurants are now open but with restrictions we prefer to stay at home at the moment. Be well and stay safe 😊
