Lemon, pistachio and white chocolate cookies

Lemon and Elderflower Traybake

It’s the second week of The Great British Bake Off! Who is loving it so far? My favourites at the moment are Manon (no not just because she looks like me haha) as well as Kim-Joy, Jon and it’s a choice between Rahul or Briony! Either way, they are all great personalities this year and I’m enjoying watching them all so much!
