Cookies, Cookies, Cookies! One Recipe, Three Ways.
Cookies, biscuits, whatever you call them, they are a household staple.
Dunked in coffee, dipped in tea, or by themselves, there is no wrong way to eat one.
I love having a tin filled with delicious cookies ready for when visitors pop over.
I noticed lately that my tin was looking very empty.
I had some baking to do!
I used a simple recipe, doubled it and then divided into three parts and made them all very different.
I made some festive spiral cookies, with strawberry and mint flavouring.
And a sprinkles and crushed candy cane coating...
Colourful and tasty!
Then the next were the classic jam drop cookies...
Wonderfully crisp on the outside and soft on the inside...
Perfect with a cup of coffee!
And the last, a decadent blend of white chocolate and vanilla wrapped in dark chocolate and espresso. Yum!
I used wholemeal flour for the dough and the texture is deliciously crumbly, a perfect cookie!
You can find the recipe HERE. The only difference I made was using wholemeal flour instead of plain.
