Biscuits & Cookies, Recipes / 22.12.2016

When I was growing up, it was always a tradition in my house to bake cookies in the weeks leading up to Christmas. My mom isn't much of a baker but my sister and I would spend many hours making dough and then cutting out and decorating cookies. Usually we would make plain old sugar cookies and decorate them with green, red and white icing. It was only in my twenties that I discovered this absolutely delicious Gingerbread Biscuit recipe, and it has been the preferred Christmas cookie ever since! There is just something so Christmassy about the aroma of cinnamon and ginger in the...

If you are on the hunt for a quick and delicious home-made gift, look no further. This white chocolate bark is so easy to make, and the bright colours just scream "festive", making it perfect for this time of year. In order to get beautifully glossy chocolate that will break with a sharp snap, you need to temper it. But don't let that word scare you! It's easy to do. The reason we temper chocolate is to encourage the cocoa butter in the chocolate to harden into a specific crystalline pattern, which maintains the gloss and texture for a long time. When chocolate is melted and...

A fabulous and unique festive gift, these delicate snowflake marshmallows make for a nice change from the usual Christmas gifts of cookies or fudge! As an added bonus, they are gluten-free. Marshmallows are so versatile too, you can have a lot fun trying out different flavours, colours and shapes! Since Christmas is around the corner, why not try these beautiful snowflake shapes? I think the snowflake shape really suits them, being white and all, but you could very easily add a little colour to the gelatine mix and make green Christmas trees or yellow stars. Simply follow the Vanilla Marshmallow Cloud recipe and use...

I have been wanting to make marshmallows for a very long time. So when I got my beautiful Kenwood Chef Titanium stand mixer as a birthday gift, the first thing I made was these yummy vanilla marshmallows! I generally believe that anything home-made tastes better than shop-bought, but certain home-made goodies are really streets ahead of the bought variety. Marshmallows fall into that category. The texture is just so light and fluffy, they almost melt in your mouth. Just like little puffy clouds. Once you have mastered the basic recipe, you can play around with all sorts of flavours and colours too. You...

Everybody loves little food. It's a thing. Make a miniature version of something and it's instantly a hit. Why? Maybe it's the cute factor. Or maybe because there is less guilt associated with eating it. Or is it because people love trying lots of different things? Why commit to 1 slice of cheesecake when you can nibble on a whole variety of goodies instead! I made these little cheesecakes for a picnic and they worked perfectly. Having bite-size version's means no need to slice and serve.  No mess, no fuss! They are also fab if you are serving up a variety of...

I'd love to tell you that my favourite thing about these ice lollies is that they are made with only fruit and are therefore super-healthy. But I'd be lying. What I love most about them is that are just so pretty! I mean look at those colours! Isn't it pleasing to know that all those lovely, bright colours come from fruit alone? These lollies are a great way to get your kids to eat something healthy on a hot summer's day. In fact once they see these beautiful treats, you may have to fight them for one! All you need to make these is fruit, water, a blender, and ice lolly...
