  • Oh hello. We're awfully busy in the kitchen this morning.

  • Lord and Lady Braybrooke with the weather so fine, have decided to go on a picnic here

  • at Audley End House down by the river.

  • I am going to make them Queen Drop Biscuits, not only are they easy to make but they are

  • also delicious. For these you will need.

  • First you need to soften the butter. And then we're going to add the sugar, and cream the

  • two together.

  • Next sift the flour.

  • Then add in the eggs and mix until it's nice and fluffy.

  • Tip in the currants, and then add a few drops of almond flavouring. I would recommend adding

  • just a few more.

  • Mix well.

  • Now take equal amounts of mixture and just drop it onto a greased baking sheet.

  • Make sure that you don't put them too close together because the mixture will spread.

  • Now place them in a less than moderate oven. They will take just under 10 minutes so keep

  • an eye on them.

  • Now they are out of the oven give them a moment and then carefully take them off and then

  • let them cool on a rack.

  • Once the biscuits are cool arrange them delicately.

  • They have the consistency of somewhere between a biscuit and a cake. I suppose the Americans

  • might call them a cookie.

  • So there we are, Queen Drop Biscuits. Perfect with a cup of tea.

Oh hello. We're awfully busy in the kitchen this morning.
