I know, I know, it's been far too long. I'M SORRY. But I've been really busy, with my new (ish) full time job as a financial journalist. I cannot apologise enough, so I will just bombard you with pictures of cake:
Mine is slightly different in that I made chocolate chip sponge and used a white chocolate and rice crispy mixture to made the head and neck of the dragon and I understand that rice crispy treats include marshmallow (I've never made them). Also my dragon doesn't breathe fire, because: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6gLMSf4afzo
Instead, I'm going to give you the recipe for my very tasty Canadian inspired maple syrup and pecan cookies.
So, I went on a business trip to Canada. And in my goody bag, courtesy of the government of Ontario, I found a bottle of maple syrup:
So I decided to put it to good use and make cookies for the office (they did send me to Canada, after all).
And the results were very good.
You will need:
220g soft brown sugar
100ml maple syrup
2 tsp baking soda
50g roughly chopped pecans
a little granulated sugar to sprinkle
1. Beat together the brown sugar and butter to a light fluffy consistency
2. Beat in the egg and maple syrup.
