Last week, The Daring Bakers received some terrible news - Sher of What Did You Eat?, a Daring Baker, passed away suddenly. Even though I did not know Sher, and had only dropped by her blog a few times through Daring Bakers events, I was extremely saddened by this news. Wonderful tributes to Sher have been posted on her blog by her husband, Bob, and by her close friend, Glenna.
In memory of Sher, the Bread Baking Babes and Kalyn's Weekend Herb Blogging group are suspending their activities today and posting recipes from Sher's blog. I am not a participant in either group, but I wanted to honour Sher in the same way by posting about one of Sher's recipes.
I chose to make Bunty's Empire Biscuits, the recipe for which originates from Sher's mother-in-law, Bunty. According to Sher's post, these are her husband's favourite biscuits, and he receives a batch from his Mom every Christmas.
My thoughts go out to Sher's family and friends at this time.
