One of my favourite things in the festive season is making sweet treats.  Cakes, candies, pies and puddings, Dad's Dundee cake.  One thing I find harder is making cookies or biscuits.  So many of my friends excel in this area, but it's a skill I'm keen to work on.

Over the weekend I made some gingerbread, and iced it with basic icing (milk, icing sugar, vanilla).  It was tasty, but it got me thinking - I'd really like to master the art of cookies this festive season!

So friends, I'm asking for help.  What are your go to recipes?  Your top tips?  Your need-to-knows?  Thank you in advance for making our Christmas even more delicious.

  2. I can do some awesome non-dairy stuff, if you are interested. Regular too - cookies and cakes in particular, even though I don't get to eat them!

    1. Ooooh, yes please! All recipes and tips gratefully received :)

  3. I don't bake, so I can't offer you any tips, but I can say "Go Claire!" re: the baking.

    1. Thank you, my lovely - I love to cook and bake :)

  4. Cookies are something I struggle with too so am keen to see what you learn x


Thank you for your comment - I do read them all but it may take me a little while (a couple of days) to respond during busy times. I love reading what you have to say!

Have a wonderful day!

I believe in 80s pop, 90s teen movies, and proper thank you notes. I just like smiling...smiling's my favourite.

I write here about London, food, books & travel, and a lot more besides. I'm never happier than when having adventures, cooking for friends, or lost in a good book.
