Default Look who helped with the baking today

Poor little Téo was delirious with fever last night. So even though it was gone this morning, I decided to keep him warm and close for an extra day. This afternoon we were both feeling up to a new culinary experience.
Someone thought all those ingredients were waaay too interesting to leave alone. So in order to avoid a fall in the egg whites (or a taste of the chocolate) I put a plate with a few treats on it...

Meanwhile of course, Clouds was singing to us from the safety of his cage



And this is what we made:



Recipe inspired from my favourite biscuits as a little girl. Except these don't contain any preservatives, flavour enhancers and other harmful chemicals.

Oh, same with the home-made Nutella we also concocted today... And filled the other and bigger part of the biscuits with.

So yum, you wouldn't know!

I see Sky wants to be your little helper in the kitchen and those biscuits look great!
I hope Téo is feeling all better now.

I'm glad Téo is feeling better now.

It looks like Sky is going to be a master chef in no time!

It may have a been a mistake to set up a plate for him... We just came home from school and as We sat down to our afternoon tea Sky started to raid us, clearly expecting to partake again.
So I set up another plate for him

Recipe follows in next post.

Like all 6-year-old, Téo is made of very hard rubber. He bounces off things and is virtually unbreakable. That fever was unreal but he got over it like it was nothing.

Oh, he was already sorted that morning but I still kept him home. No reason taking the risk of a relapse (and we have such good fun together)

Default

They're called 'Barquettes' in French (it means little boat)
Once the ingredients are ready to be used, they take less than 20 minutes to make.

4 eggs
120 g white flour (or 140g of gluten free baking mix)
100g sugar (I use soft brown sugar but caster is also fine)
1 tsp of vanilla essence

Pre-heat the oven at 180 C (that's 356 F exactly, Miss FaeryBee).
Separate the whites and yolks.
Whisk the whites till very firm.
In a separate bowl, whisk the yolks and sugar together until pale and foamy.
Add the vanilla essence, quick whisk.
Add the flour and whisk more but on slow speed, until completely smooth.
In corporate the whites with a spoon, very gently (so you lose as little as possible of those air bubbles).
Spoon out walnut size amounts on oven tray covered with baking paper, trying to give them an oval shape if at all possible. Leave enough space around each as they will fluff up quite a bit.
Put in the oven for 10min (in fan-forced oven) to 15 minutes (in conventional oven).
Take them out and push a dip in their centre using a small spoon (a wet finger works even better).
Then fill the hole with choice of jam or (home-made) Nutella.

If you have much more self-control than we did, put them to cool in the fridge (we most certainly did not, although those we didn't eat are now hidden in the freezer, waiting to be placed in lunch box on an irregular basis).

I can't wait to hear what you think of those
