I haven’t been making quite as many dumplings as I’d like. Instead I’ve been writing 50 000 words as part of National Novel Writing Month! Now it’s all over and time to get stuck back into the dumpling making. I’m looking forward to trying out some Christmas recipes.
Here are some hedgehog shortbread biscuits I made recently from a recipe I found on Pinterest*. They are as cute as dumplings, but they don’t quite count according some dumpling definitions. Although they’re time consuming, they’re quite simple to make. I think they’d be great as gifts.
*Note that I swapped the walnuts in the recipe for blanched almonds.
