I have some very old Alison Burt's Cookery Cards but the one I really want is Tollhouse Squares...which I've lost!

Would anyone have these cards and could send me the recipe?

Thank you smile

Hello, I've been searching for an Alison Burt Super Saver Cookery Card, thought I had kept when my Mum moved (and threw them out!) it but I can't find it. It was for the Hedgehog Cake. I made one for my son's first birthday (13 years ago) and he saw a photo of it yesterday and said he'd like the same today! Can anyone help? Please!!

I see some have the Alison Burts Super Saving Cooking Cards from the 70's. I'm looking for the cheese scone recipe, it's by far the best I've ever tried and my mum can't find hers. Can anyone please help me???

Apologies for the delay here is the recipe for the cheese scones. Happy baking.

Cheese Scones
Makes 10-12 Scones
Prep Time 10mins
Cook Time 15mins
Oven Temp 425F/220C/Gas Mark 7
8oz/225g self raising flour
1/2 level tsp salt
1 level tsp dry mustard
1/4 level tsp cayenne pepper
2oz/50g margarine
2oz/50g cheddar cheese grated
1/4 pint/1.5 dl milk
Lightly grease a baking tray. Sift the flour, salt, mustard and cayenne pepper together into a mixing bowl. Add the margarine, cut into small pieces. Rub the margarine into the flour. Stir in the cheese. Mix with a fork and add enough milk to make a soft dough. Knead the dough gently on a lightly floured surface and roll out to ½ inch/12mm thick. Using a 2inch/5cm plain round biscuit cutter, cut out as many scones as possible. Place on the baking tray and brush the tops with any remaining milk. Bake in a hot oven for about 15mins or until well risen and golden: they should sound hollow if tapped underneath. Cool on a wire rack or serve warm.

I am looking for Family pate (appetisers) from Alison Burt's Super Saving Recipe Cards, can anyone help please?

Rookie question but what is a dl where it says 1.5dl in the scone recipe?

cdtaylornats Fri 06-Mar-15 11:49:49

It looks like dl is decilitres in this case 1/4 pint = 150 ml

Yvonne162 - Here's the recipe for the family pate

Serves 4 – 6 people
Prep time 15mins plus cooling time
Cooking time – 2 hours
Oven Temp – 350F/180C or Mark 4
8 rashers streaky bacon
8oz/225g pig’s liver
1 onion
8oz/225g pork sausage meat
1 level tsp salt
¼ level tsp black pepper
1 level tsp mixed dried herbs
1 egg
3 small bay leaves
Parsley for garnish

Remove the rinds and any bones from bacon. Spread the rashers with the back of a knife until they are doubled in length. Line a 1pt capacity dish with the bacon, reserving some rashers for the top. Remove any sinews from the liver then mince it coarsely with the onion. Mix in the sausage meat, salt, pepper herbs and egg. Spoon the mixture into the prepared dish and lay the reserved bacon rashers on top. Put the bay leaves on the bacon. Cover with a piece greased greaseproof paper then a piece of foil. Put the dish in a roasting pan with cold water to come halfway up the sides. Cook in a moderate oven (350F/180C/Mark 4) for 2hrs. Uncover the pate and cover with fresh greaseproof paper. Place a heavy weight on top and leave in a cool place overnight or until firm. Serve garnished with parsley.

I have all of Alison Burts cookery cards going back to the 70s. I use one of them all the time and have mislaid it. It is one of her cakes that uses evaporated milk and coco. Would appreciate if anyone would have it.

Hi. I am desperately trying to find a recipe from the Alison Burts super saving cookery card collection that my Mum used to have. It's called either Savoury Omelette Stack or Omelette hay stack. I am sure it was from this card collection. I would really appreciate it if you could have a look for me?? Many thanks
