Mini Egg Cookies

I had an elaborate cake planned as my Easter recipe this year. I was really excited about it too. But half way through baking it, my oven broke. Again! This is the second time in less than 12 months that our oven has broken. Last time it was one of the fans, this time, the … Continue reading Mini Egg Cookies

Flourless Almond Biscuits

This recipe is adapted from a Golden Coconut Pyramids recipe in my very old Dairy Book of Home Cookery (see my About Page for more info).

It's smooth, creamy and has a definite garlic kick but without being overbearing. It's also really quick and easy to make and needs only 5 ingredients. Serve this dip with a … Continue reading The Best Garlic Mayo Dip

What's not to love about Millionaire's Shortbread? - Buttery shortbread, sweet caramel and crunchy chocolate all together in bite sized pieces. Add a hint of champagne and you take it to a whole new level! It's really easy to make too, this recipe doesn't even need you to bake the shortbread. The cooling time between … Continue reading Millionaire’s Champagne Shortbread
