Biscuits & Cookies, Recipes / 12.02.2018

I had a lot of fun making these Valentine's Day Fortune Cookies! Once you get the hang of the folding and curling, they are very easy to make. And you get to write your very own personal message for your loved one to receive as a sweet surprise! I used a good quality almond extract for the flavour and it really adds something special. The cookies actually taste great without the chocolate too, but in the spirit of Valentine's Day I felt they needed a little "bling"! Ingredients: 2 large egg whites 45ml butter, melted and cooled 2 tsp water ½ tsp Nielsen-Massey Almond Extract (available...

And then there's the fresh burst of fruity flavour from the blueberry compote. What really makes these Blueberry Cheesecake Macarons so gorgeous is the beautiful little speckles of actual dried blueberries. A bit like a macaron version of a speckled egg! That's thanks to the addition of blueberry powder to...

Many months ago I spotted an adorable doughnut silicone mould at a baking store. The little doughnut indents are only 4cm in size - so cute! Having absolutely no idea what I would ever do with it, I instantly bought it. (This was to avoid the case of me later thinking of a use for it, going back and finding it sold out never to return again as normally happens when I don't buy something I like). I'm pleased to report that I eventually found the perfect use for it - to make these darling Mini Doughnut Cake Pops. Cake pops are...
