Gypsy Creams

This are still a family favourite… I must make them at once if not more every single week. There easy, cheap, quick and can be made with store cupboard staples.

Rationing Revisited

These are so easy and quick, and go down a storm with the kids…. they loved making them and eating them.


  • 2 Cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2oz margarine
  • 2oz butter (or lard… I’d use butter though)
  • 1 tbsp syrup
  • 1 tbsp water


  1. Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside
  2. melt the fats, syrup and water, without boiling
  3. add the syrup/ fat mix to the dry ingredients to form a stiff consistency.
  4. Make into small balls, about the size of hazelnuts.
  5. Flatten slightly and bake on Gas Mark 4 for about 10 to 15 minutes
  6. When golden brown, cool on a wire tray
  7. Sandwich together with a filling of butter icing, flavoured to taste with chocolate, orange or vanilla.
  8. A little dried milk and syrup helps to stretch this filling.
