Earlier this week I posted some photos on social media of a batch of biscuits I was making in the old “roll and fork” style (I was trying to create something that reminded me of the biscuits we enjoyed as kids). The image got a bigger response than anything else I’ve posted recently (you guys sure love your biscuits!) and it inspired me to put together another recipe round up – and this time it’s allll about cookies.
I first learnt to bake before I learnt to cook, and baking cookies at home takes me straight to my happy place. I hope these recipes do the same for you!
This recipe will make a batch of cookies that are a little bit crispy, a little bit chewy and a whole lot of chocolatey! The recipe is based on the way my mum used to make them when I was younger, she would often pop them in my lunchbox along with my sarmies.
I originally put these together for a Christmas party by taking my favourite basic crunchie recipe and adding dried cranberries and white chocolate – but they’re just too moreish to reserve for one month of the year!
Delicious chocolate and coconut biscuits sandwiched together with dark chocolate – you won’t be able to stop at one!
Two heart shaped chocolate sugar cookies squeezed together in a caramel hug, yum! Make them for your specials any time of the year!
These butter cookies contain ground almonds which gives them a slightly nutty flavour (yum) and crunchy texture, plus they are drizzled with dark chocolate for extra decadence. You could even try milk or white chocolate for something different.
These tasty oat cookies are made with warming spices and topped with a white chocolate and yoghurt drizzle.
If you’re looking for your next cookie fix then take it from me – these peanut butter cookies should definitely be the next thing you bake. These giant, chewy cookies are loaded with peanut butter and dark chocolate, totally yum!
This is one of my all time favourite biscuit recipes and one of the very first recipes I published on the blog. I’ve made these scrumptious cookies more times then I can remember, they are a must try!
Technically, I’m not sure if these good, old fashioned no nonsense jam squares qualify as cookies, but I’m including them anyway! A classic but a goodie.
I asked some of my food blogging friends to share their favourite cookie recipes too, check out these fabulous recipes! (I’m literally drooling over here…)
