Cookies for christmas


Decided to cook something a bit tamer this week, due to cake disaster, and the fact that I’m baking for a charity cake stall – can’t really expect people to buy beetroot cupcakes. I’m also one of those people who dislikes celebrating christmas in November – wanted to steer clear of the whole theme for a few more weeks.  (Stay tuned though, I’ve spied a great snowman cupcake recipe that is just crying out for me to try).

So I thought what could be more appealing than choc chip cookies?

I found a great looking recipe.

Made my own batches of dark and milk choc chip, and another batch with smarties.

The results:Was pretty happy with the outcome…

Taste: Lots of huge choc chunks: always good.

Looks: For some reason they spread out quite a lot, not the tidiest looking cookies I’ve ever seen, bet hey, it’s all about the taste.

Tips? I doubled the recipe, so unless like me you’re catering for a whole journalism school, i’d stick with the quantities given.

Now time to test these beauties out at the cake sale…
