other activities during the virus-induced 'quarantine' included baking cats and moons. from darina allen's 'ballymaloe cookery course' (donated by favourite aunt)  ::

175g white flour
110g butter
50g caster sugar

preheat oven to 180c

put flour and sugar in a bowl and rub in butter as for shortcrust pastry. gather the mixture together and knead it lightly. roll out to 5mm thick. cut into shapes with cutters. arrange on silicone (or parchment) paper on a baking tray and bake until pale brown, 10-15 minutes.

cool on a rack.
