Apricot Almond Cardamon Biscuits

The time I spend cooking and baking, inventing and tweaking recipes until they’re just how I want them to be, tasting and then uhm ’tasting’ again. Discovering and discussing flavour combinations with the kids, getting their opinions on how experiments have turned out, what might be missing, how we could make them better. I love it.

Miss four and miss seven make such funny faces at exactly the moment it crosses their lips, prepared for a range of responses anything from inedible to their new favorite flavour in the world. Which considering it’s mostly been sweet bakes lately is far more likely to be the latter. Instant recognition of the delights of sugar!

So here’s another.

What are your favorite fruit and nut combinations?


  1. I have to admit I am a bit rubbish at biscuits – I don’t often make them is my excuse. These flavours sound amazing and they look as good as your apple crackers (and that’s a very high compliment!) #CookBlogShare

    • Thank you Lucy! What an incredibly lovely thing to say 🙂
      ….Makes me want to bake biscuits …Just for you!

  2. Oh, I love that combination of nuts and apricots! Sometimes I add nutmeg or cinnamon instead of cardamom!
    Biscuits look tasty! 🙂

  3. These are so delicate and pretty, I would replace the almonds for me but Peter would love them just as they are. Gorgeous. Thanks for linking up to #tastytuesdays
