Cream Cheese Slice

This is another family favourite that we often used to take to any meeting or function that called for a plate of something for afternoon tea. So easy to make and keeps okay for several days in the refridgerator. That is if any is left over.


250 g cream cheese
250 g unsalted butter
200 g caster sugar
1 dessertspoon of gelatine dissolved in 3 dessertspoons hot water and let to cool
2 pkts lattice biscuits (raspberry waffles)
few drops vanilla essence

Cream the butter and sugar. Add cream cheese, gelatine mix and vanilla essence and mix well together. Sandwich mixture between two biscuits. Continue this way until all mixture and biscuits are used up. Place on tray or plate in the fridge and let to set firmly. Serve with tea or coffee for a yummy treat.

Bircher Muesli

Everyone loves muesli done this way and you make your own just as good as what you find served at the very best hotels on the breakfast menu. You can alter some of these ingredients to suit your own taste but I find that this one works well for me. You can halve mixture if this recipe is too much and it keeps well in the fridge for several days. Make sure you keep it sealed or with plastic wrap over the bowl.


3 cups rolled oats
2 cups fresh orange juice
2 x 200 g tubs plain light yoghurt or honey yoghurt
1/2 cup sliced dried apples
1/4 cup dried apricots
1/4 cup sultanas
1/3 cup honey
1 cup milk
3 small plums, chopped
1/3 cup slivered almonds - toasted
extra plums

Combine oats, juice and yoghurt in a large bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
Remove from fridge and stir in apples, sultanas, apricots, honey, milk and chopped plums and mix well. Cover and refridgerate for 30 minutes. Serve muesli topped with almonds and the extra plums.
