Crumble Now and Again

It’s funny how thoughts come to you at the most unexpected of times (well, actually, it’s a well documented phenomenom- allow yourself space to think and the ideas come flooding in).

Back to the point. Yesterday I was making a crumble topping for vegetarian pie and poured the ingredients into my new Kenwood mixer. I’m clearly not used to the efficiency of the new mixer and before I knew it the crumble stage has passed and I had very rich short crust pastry. I’d missed the critical moment!

I gathered up the dough and put to rest in the fridge while I wondered what to do with it. (Incidentally, chilling dough makes for much better pastry so this was a good move.)

Today I took out my lump of unwanted pastry and stared at it for a while. And then I decided to make cheesey biscuits. So now I have two dozen rich buttery cheesey biscuits, pleasurable but unintended consequences of my earlier mistake.

What’s the best mistake you have ever made?
