Cookie monster

If you ask my friends and family to name something they associate with me, they may well say cookies. Which is slightly shameful. But fairly true. I LOVE cookies. As far as I’m concerned Millie should be knight(ess)ed for her services to the UK with her giant cookies. I honored her by serving them for dessert at our wedding, hurrah! (They were followed closely by After Eights, my other guilty pleasure).

Er right… enough of my dreaming in chocolate… I also love making my own cookies for friends and family. As you will know from my earlier post, sugarpasting things is ace. And cookies give me the chance to make something really special and detailed with icing.

It was tricky getting the cookie recipe itself right at first – to get the taste right alongside a good consistency for decorating – but now my vanilla or chocolate cookies get good feedback. I made these for our wedding favours (who doesn’t love a butterfly?? Perhaps my husband, but he was overruled!)

Please forgive the unseasonal posts, but my spooky cookies usually go down well at Halloween…

…and I just love the smell of spiced orange cookies at Christmas. Mmmmmm!

Hope you like (despite some of the truly dodgy camera work by moi, whoops!)
