Cocoa Walnut Cookies

Hello Everyone, I hope that your day has been well.

Today I’m sharing these are cute little cookies I made recently. They are a great snack to have throughout the day and they taste delicious when slightly warm from the oven. The center is nice and soft and they are not too sweet either. I packed a few of these for my work lunch and had them in the afternoon which was perfect. This recipe is super quick to make and can be kept for up to 3 day in an airtight container.

Coconut Cookies

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well.

This recipe is definitely for the coconut lovers. A quick recipe that is easy to prepare and only takes 10-15 minutes in the oven depending on how golden you would like them to be. I also thought these would make a really nice homemade gift for friends or family members. Whilst we are still in somewhat of a lockdown and we can’t see people as freely as we would like, why not bake some cookies and post them to loved ones. The recipe makes quite a lot depending on how big/small you want them to be and they will keep for a few days in an air tight container.

These cookies are great to make with kids because the recipe is simple and a perfect treat with a cup of tea! Also, the desiccated coconut is a great source of fibre.

Sprinkle Cookies

Hello everyone welcome back to my blog. I hope your day has been well.

Interestingly, sprinkles (hundreds and thousands) are also know as nonpariels in French, and are made up of sugar and starch, they were traditionally white but now come in many colours. Sprinkle cookies and cakes are actually quite a popular baked treat probably because of the bright colours, mine are a little less covered in the sugar but taste great all the same.

Recipe: Sprinkle Cookies (makes 20)

Ingredients

175g plain flour

115g butter

45g caster sugar

10g hundreds and thousands plus extra for sprinkling on top

Method

  • Set the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with baking paper.
  • Sift the flour into a large bowl and rub in the butter.
  • Next, add the sugar and hundreds and thousands and knead until it forms a dough.
  • Roll out onto a floured surface to the thickness of 5mm and use a 68mm cookie cutter to cut out the cookies.
  • Place them on the tray and bake in the oven for 20m minutes until fully cooked.
  • Leave to cool down completely on a wire rack before eating

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Hello everyone, I hope your day has been well. Today’s recipe feature oats and raisins which are both tasty and popular baking ingredients. Oats are very healthy, gluten free and full of nutrients. Raisins are beneficial to the body when eaten in moderation as they are sweet and high in sugar, raisins are also high in vitamins, minerals and fibre.

These cookies are so delicious, I like to keep them in the oven long enough so that they have a little crispiness to the bite. They are perfect to eat at anytime of the day and make a great snack.
