North American cookies tend to be softer and sweeter than Kiwi biscuits to generalise here. North American cookie dough for chocolate chip cookies doesn’t need to be squashed down with a fork before baking.
I think I should point out that I used high grade white flour for the North American version but with the Kiwi version I used wholemeal flour so they look different. Next batch of North American style I will try it with wholemeal and see what happens.
I wanted to make biscuits last night. I wanted to make Kiwi Crisps AKA Chocolate Chip Cookies/Biscuits. I really wanted to make them Kiwi style but I didn’t have condensed milk so I went to the internet and found another recipe. A soft biscuit recipe.
I think I may be switching my “LIKE” preference.
I think I prefer softer biscuits. Maybe it’s how I feel in summer? I’m not a dunker, although with the exception of perhaps gingernuts. Maybe it’s because I recently visited my dentist and had a filing replaced that fell out at Christmas time has something to do with it? Hard to tell.
And explain to me why I have cravings for sweet things when I am trying to cut out sugar from my diet. It won’t be rid of overnight. I think it will happen gradually. I don’t believe in dieting. I believe in a lifestyle change. I have added tofu back into my diet. So if tofu comes in what unhealthy thing should I remove from my diet? Correction, reduce from my diet? Anyone can do something for a week or two and say look now I’m x kilograms less now. Yippee. But then they return to their old habits and it just causes heartache literally and figuratively. I would rather change bits for the better and make it a keeper of a change. For example I never have fizzy drink, soft drinks or soda. The only fizzy thing I drink is soda water. That was a change I made many years ago, and I have never looked back. I don’t buy fruit juice, too much sugar, but I make my own with a blend of vegetable juice. That way it’s fresh and I know what goes into it. I sidetracked myself. So what should I reduce from my diet? Hints anyone?
I need to get back to exercise again. Someone I follow is doing SPIN CLASSES. I am inspired to move. Now up till now I didn’t really understand exactly what a spin class really was.
Put down your coffee. Swallow.
I thought a spin class was like the spinning Dervishes. Mmmm. I never understood the interest apart from getting dizzy and falling over. I imagined all these people trying to remain in their area the size of a yoga mat while staring at a spot on the wall while pirouetting like a ballet dancer minus the toe pointing to wild classical music. You can see I haven’t been inside a gym in a while. Now I get it. I feel back with the world again. Spin as in a spinning wheel of a bicycle. Ah well. Doesn’t seem so hard now. Perhaps I might be persuaded to get back in the saddle again.
