Weekender Biscuits (GF)

This is one of those recipes from The Australian Women's Weekly "Big Book of Beautiful Biscuits" cookbooks that I think every kid growing up in Australia would know, but the rest of the world raises an eyebrow to! There's a lot of things in that category I have discovered, but don't worry there's not a trace of vegemite to be found. If you'd rather, think of them as "Cornflake Cookies"

I think these are called Weekender Biscuits because they don't last more than the weekend. 

I haven't had these cookies in such a long time, but when I was in Jersey and bought an entire box of Gluten Free Cornflakes (to last just 5 days) I had plenty to spare and so I thought I may as well try and see how they go being gluten free. And well, they were delicious to be frank! 

Rolled in cornflakes (which can be GF) and filled with sultanas (to add some moisture) you would never know they aren't the real deal. We ate an entire batch when we were wandering around the Jersey Zoo, so I had to make another batch to photograph. Shame. 

All the kids gobbled them up too, and each batch lasted just the one day, so maybe they can be called the Saturdayer Biscuits in our house! 

I thought I'd share it with you this fine Friday morning in case you are looking for a new cookie to try this weekend, or want a nostalgic trip down memory lane! Either way, nom nom nom. 

So whatever you call them, however long they last, they are definitely worth making this weekend!

I hope you have something fun planned for the weekend! We are hoping to cheer Oxford on in the Boat Race (unless its raining, we are fair-weather supports) and are hoping to get to the V&A. What have you got on?

  1. Ooooh, these look and sound great.

    I'm pretty sure I'm sensitive to wheat because if I have pasta or bread I get horrible stomach aches within an hour to an hour and a half of eating. I know I should see the doctor and get it tested but for now I'm just avoiding wheat and consuming intermittently in very small doses.

    Needless to say, I like these GF recipes because sometimes you just crave a biscuit, cookie, or cake!

    Wishing you a lovely weekend.

    1. Oh shame, that's no good that you've been unwell, but if you think you've figured out what has caused it then removing gluten is an easy solution. I do miss a few flaky pastries here and there, but generally they aren't worth the pain. I hope it helps you feel better. Let me know how you get on xx

  2. Those biscuits look amazing, I'm saving this recipe!

    1. Thanks Jaclyn, they are definitely worth making! Let me know if you do make them!!! xx


Thanks for your comments, I SO love hearing from you! xx Meg
