Lemon, pistachio and white chocolate cookies

These three flavours are one of my FAVOURITE combos of all time – especially when it starts getting closer to the summer!The citrus of the lemon, with the crunchy pistachios and then the luxurious creamy taste of the white chocolate goes perfectly in this soft, chewy cookie!

These are not your classic crunchy cookies. They are super soft, with a slight crunch on the outside and honestly do not last 5 seconds in my household! Also – the SMELL when baking these are too divine!

Vegan Chocolate Chip Cookies

It’s vegan week this week of the Bake Off and what an inspiring week! I am not personally vegan myself, but have always been fascinated at vegan food, with the substitutes for animal products including meat and dairy! This weeks episode showed me something i’ve never seen before and that’s using aquafaba in replacement of eggs. This was used for making fluffy meringue which made me wonder, can it be replaced in any recipe? And hello chocolate chip cookies!

P&J Cookies – A Twist on the classic Jammie Dodger

Anyone else here absolutely obsessed with Jammie Dodgers when growing up? They were the ultimate childhood biscuit and it was my mission to nibble all of the bisuit away before devouring the gooey jam middle.

GBBO Challenge Week Ten – Ginger Biscuits

Ah, the finale! What a series it has been. As much as I have loved this season, the finale didn’t have as many exciting bakes as it usually does, especially not to the creative bakes they’ve been tested on in previous weeks.

It’s biscuit week! Whilst I love baking, I have got to admit… biscuits can be a little average and tend not to get the big “WOW” moment when you put a plateful down in front of your guests. However, this week on bake off Stacey’s chocolate sandwich cookies were covered in edible GLITTER!!! I mean HELLO could we get anymore snazzy?

Easter is coming! That means chocolate, chocolate and of course, MORE CHOCOLATE!
I love Easter, it’s spring time and the sun and flowers start to show their faces again as well as all the scrumptious food I can eat from hot cross buns to melted chocolate crispies!

These mini chocolate chip cookies are the perfect interlude recipe to make to get your taste buds going again. They are small, yet incredibly delicious and you wont want to put them down… (I ate all of mine within one night, don’t say I didn’t tell you so)
