As you know we opened a class in the village hall in November 2015, started with just a few loyal members and now have more than 20 fantastic ladies in our group and growing. The class has been wonderfully successful, with a whopping 26 stone 8.5lb lost in the first 10 weeks of 2016!
Our group has become close knit, full of support and ideas to help everyone else and generally a chance to have a chat, cuppa and a giggle. I certainly go home after class full of inspiration and lifted in spirits.
The class is at 7.30pm on Thursdays, and a warm welcome is always given – if you feel like now is the right time to lose those extra pounds then why not come & see me. If you are looking for something to do with the children this Easter break, why not try our recipe for Iced Easter Biscuits:
125g Caster Sugar
275g Plain White Flour, plain
50g Semolina, Dried, or ground rice
50g Icing Sugar
Preheat the oven to Gas Mark 4/180°C/fan oven 160°C/350°F.
Beat the butter until softened and gradually beat in the caster sugar.
Add the flour and semolina, working it in with a wooden spoon
Gather the dough together with your hands, then knead for a few moments until smooth.
Roll out the dough thinly on a lightly floured surface. Stamp out shapes using biscuit cutters.
Arrange on baking sheets.
Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until light golden brown.
Cool on wire racks.
Mix the icing sugar with a little water to make a smooth glace icing, then use this to decorate the biscuits.
