Last Saturday, my morning of indolence was disturbed by the unexpected arrival of a parcel. Inside was a kit for baking Dalek biscuits from Vanessa & Raz. I'd left a comment on Vanessa's Flickr stream a few weeks back, saying how much I fancied the biscuits. And she presented me with the chance to bake my own.

Thanks, Vanessa!

That evening, while Lorna was on the 'phone, I baked 'em up. It was somewhat challenging, as much of my kitchen equipment is packed away prior to us putting the flat on the market. No mixing bowl (I used a measuring jug) and no baking tray (I used a roasting dish). Not even a rolling pin.

It was a lot more fun than I expected, though, even if the biscuits themselves were slightly disappointing. I've cleaned the mould, though, and I'll have another go with my own cookie recipe, oh yes. Nothing can stop me now!
