The things I do for love…

I did say I still had things to tell you about the Holiday season! Below is a picture of the presents all of my friends received for Christmas. I’m glad I managed to make nearly all of the Christmas gifts I gave, and I am particularly pleased that these ones tasted so good!

In the red basket/box things are 2 cupcakes:

– one chocolate peppermint (with a red candy button on top);

– one cranberry, apple and walnut (so amazingly tasty! and they used more of the turkish apple tea powder I have),

and 2 cookie sandwiches:

– one plain shortbread sandwiched around apple flavoured butter icing (turkish apple tea powder again);

– one plain shortbread sandwiched around chocolate butter icing.

All my friends loved them all! And so did I!

What edible treats have you made recently?

Cookies!

More baking! As well as the cakes I made at the weekend, I made cookies!

I made two flavours 🙂 both of which I will be making a lot more of over the coming christmas period 🙂 I made apple shortbread and chocolate peppermint shortbread.

Recipe:

– Basic shortbread (family recipe – no can tell!) – any cookie mix or shortbread mix will work (my shortbread had no eggs)

– Add peppermint hot chocolate to the choccy peppermint ones

– Add apple flavouring to the apple shortbread ones 🙂 (I used apple powdered tea that I got from turkey  aaaages ago)

I know I said I’d post a recipe that I can tell you, well, shortbread is so simple, this counts!!

Feeling hungry now? 😉
