i <3 lord of the rings, annnnnd i felt like making me some lembas. my family thinks they're scones, but i will make them see the light. the light of the elves. there are many recipes floating around 'teh interweb' but i've personally tested this one, and its rather addictive
2.5 cups of flower
1 tablespoon (yes tablespoon) baking POWDER
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 stick'o'butter (8 tablespoons) softened but not melted
2/3 cup milk/cream/bailey's irish (i use all three, sometimes together, unfortunately, more than a third of bailey's is too much for my taste)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
(1) preheat over to 425 degrees.
(2) Mix flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl
(3) cut the butter in with a fork or pastry tool until its evenly mixed, kind of a grainy mixture
(4) mix in the sugar and cinnomin
(5) add milk and vanilla and mix it together until its a big glob of dough, if its too hard to stir, add some milk
divide into balls and mash them onto a cookie sheet (i use parchment paper, because im an elitist and i hate to wash the cookie sheets....and because i get angry and fling things when the cookies stick
they should be about 1/2 an inch thick
Makes 12 or more, depending on how big you want them, but too big and they fall apart though.
Cook for 12 minutes, or until the edges are brown. if they look really thick to you, you might want to toothpick test the middles to make sure they're not gooey.
IF you have mallorn leaves, wrap up your lembas in them and they will never go stale.
however, in 99.9% of the world, mallorn leaves are scarce sooo wrap them in clingwrap or but them in some tupperware and they should last about a week. happy munching!
oh! they are delicious with jam or honey, but very tastey plain as well.
