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.

    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!

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