As with many of the recipes we try, there were very few ingredients (in this case, just six) and so the required items were gathered and weighed... although we only made half the quantity listed in this recipe. For a change, Sous Chef J and I made just one substitution in the recipe and this was to use Dove's Farm Gluten and Wheat free Plain White flour.
When the snaps were done, they were taken off the baking tray (leaving them on the silicone sheet) to cool slightly before being shaped. We used a the handle of a silicone brush for the traditional snap shape.
One larger basket was made using a bigger blob of the mix. Once this was cooked and cooled very slightly, it was dangled over an oiled glass pot... will take some work to sort the technique but you get the idea.
Other baskets were attempted... we liked our triangular shaped ones and, once they were cooled, some freshly whipped cream and sprinkles were added.
A lovely Hallowe'en or Bonfire Night treat!
