1  First post in needlework - Biscornu! in Needlework: Completed Projects by Bakaness on: December 28, 2010 06:24:29 PM
I stumbled upon basket of biscornu http://basketofbiscornu.blogspot.com/ a few weeks ago, and got hooked. I'm planning on doing the challenge next year (1 biscornu a month) - anyone want to do it with me?

Here's what I've made so far:

2 little cross-stitch pieces in November (each only took a few hours - they're really small!)

And for December (the white lines aren't quite that visible IRL, I promise!)

The soluble marker I used for the black doesn't dissolve as easily as the blue one I used for the white ones - I scrubbed at it with hand soap, as well as soaking it in water, but it still hasn't completely come off. Any hints on how to get it off more easily?

Well, I used metric cups, substituted nuttlex for butter (I was cooking for someone with a milk allergy), vanilla essence for almond (since I didn't have any) and they were great! I just used a boysenberry jam I picked up at the supermarket.

Before baking:


Done!


The lighting doesn't show the colours properly - they were a very nice golden colour.

I found the recipe made 3 dozen, plus a few for the baker.  Grin I was a bit skimpy with the jam, since I was paranoid of it overflowing - next time I'll use a little bit more. This recipe is definitely on my X-mas cookie list!
