Hi everyone, sorry i didn't get back regarding my shortbread making. Just as i was about to bake, ingred all at the ready my oven died!!! it is only 18 months old-a large smeg which i love. It needed a new switch and this was only done the week of christmas. I then cooked turkey and pork and christmas was great.
Then i thought ok i am still going to cook my shortbread..oven died again 2 days after christmas!!! The repair guy was away and it has only just been fixed. So today i decided to bake Greek honey christmas biscuits-melomacarona. Oven on first to heat-it worked... all ready for the oven and it dies AGAIN.. i had to go to a neighbours to cook them. They are dipped in honey syrup after they are cooked and then sprinkled with ground walnuts. The biscuits are delicious and are helping to keep me calm about the oven...or maybe that was the glass of wine

My deepest sympathy on the passing of your oven. May it rest in peace Sad

Thankyou for your sympathy David, however i am hoping (as it is only 18mths old) the repair guy can work some magic. Apparently the door switch is a bad design-the oven draws alot of current-it does cook well when working!!-all this current goes through the switch which does not cope. Does anyone else know of this problem?
