We all have lazy days which is why I don’t mind using a cookie mix every once in a while. When I made these I was craving something a little sweet, whenever you are short for time or feeling lazy it’s the perfect option. These cookies were super simple to make, as you can imagine and only took 12 minutes to bake in the oven. I did leave them in for a few minutes longer to give the cookies that extra crunch, but they were still very delicious. They are definitely a treat and great for that pick me up work snack!
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.

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.

Recently I baked these thick, soft, delicious cookies. The cocoa gives it such a rich flavour and the the white chocolate chunks are a perfect treat with every bite. These cookies are indulgent and great for dessert after dinner with ice cream or custard. They will last 3-4 days in a container.

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)
175g plain flour
45g caster sugar
10g hundreds and thousands plus extra for sprinkling on top
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
