Fox's Brandysnaps Review
Just wanted to share my thoughts on the brandy snap - although I like them crispy like you, my favourite is when they have been left in in the open air for a day or so and they go a bit 'off'. This leaves them with a nice chewy consistency.
Mmmm - but only at Christmas. It's very naughty to eat them at any other time of the year!
By the way I live in New Zealand now and I really miss our biscuits from home. The biscuit aisle here is very short and not very imaginative. What I wouldn't give for a hobnob or two! It's not that their bad -there's just not much selection really and we miss the simple perfection of things like chocolate digestives.
But I'm pleased to report that the long-lost tradition of morning tea is still alive and kicking in the workplace here. Kiwis love nothing more than an excuse to stop work and have a cuppa and an Anzac (now there's a nice biscuit for you!) or a cake.
Fox's Brandysnaps Review
|Hi Nicey, Wifey and Younger Members of Staff|
Mmmm, brandysnaps.....I made an interesting discovery last Christmas. As you say, these snaps are very fragile, and trying to introduce anything into their cavity is fraught with danger. But fear not, all is not lost. If you buy one of those aerosol cans of squirty cream, you can inject cream all the way through (maybe approaching from one end at a a time if you're feeling a little nervous at the thought of creaming the entire kitchen) and Hey Presto, cream filled Brandy Snaps! Of course, they have to be eaten IMMEDIATELY, because that squirty stuff goes liquid very quickly, so there isn't really a chance to share them with anyone, and anyway, eating them can be a slightly messy event so you would really rather not have anyone else around anyway. Delish!
All the best, keep up the good work,
|Nicey replies: You can get squirty Brandy Butter cream too, but perhaps such a combination is actually fatal, hence the Raspberry to just take the edge off.|
