Today is Very Important Day. Today is Bloke's Birthday. And hence, there has been BAKING. Behold!

Star cookies (from the dough reserved at the weekend)

That most American of treats, pecan pie (with toasted almonds, because I didn't have enough pecans, ho hum)
Pies, we made PIES!

And choccy biccies. Huzzah!

I highly recommend it! This is my favourite version of the recipe, though I often add a little bit of cinnamon to the 'crumbs'. Some recipes tell you to pour all the wet ingredients into the pastry first, then dump all the crumble on top, but I find the layering gives better results. (The other thing I do is make a double quantity of the crumble element and freeze the other half to use in a fruit crumble at a later date).

The first time I made it, I was a bit intimidated by the messing about with molasses and boiling water and soda, but it's pretty straightforward. If you have trouble getting molasses, you get an acceptable result with a mix of 2/3 treacle, 1/3 golden syrup, but health food shops and bigger supermarkets usually have it.
