Bake Off Bake Along #2 | Biscuits

I'm well aware of the fact that this post is over a week late, I was ill at the beginning of next week which threw everything kinda off balance, but as you well know I'm back to normal now. So here it is, my second bake off bake along.

I have to admit, I've never made a biscuit before, apart from maybe in year 7 food tech, where I tried to make some checkerboard chocolate and vanilla (ambitious) biscuits, which ended up being more of a 'marbled' effect. I can't remember the grade I got but I do remember the teacher being quite impressed to a certain extent so there we go.

My attempt at this though, was less than half arsed, I knew I was already behind and to be honest, I baked them on wednesday, after watching GBBO, and quite clearly giddy from 'bread week'. Justified I think.

So I won't go into too much detail but here are my week two biscuits, 'Red Onion & Garlic Shorties'. To which someone at work quaffed at, but to me, red onion and garlic is a winning combo. With a bit more fine tuning on the taste, I'd say this biscuit would be a perfect accompaniment for cheese. Although I'd definitely prefer it as more of a cracker than the sweetness of a shortbread. I was pushed for time and didn't research properly. Silly.

Still, the bake was good, the texture spot on and the colour of them almost perfect I'd say. Just an issue with their actual shape - I tried cutting, I really did.

What did I learn from this week's bake? That I'm not too fussed on learning to make biscuits, but that I would like to learn to make this in cracker form, served with a nice stinky cheese.
