Jelly Sweet Cookies

I got given these as a Christmas present from a client and they’ve been sitting on the side in the living room since. I love Fruit Pastilles and sweets like that loads (I have such a general sweet tooth, anything with a bit of sugar in and I’m happy!) so I immediately thought of baking when I was given these.

I wanted to bake something quickly after a quite bad baking fail (you don’t want to know!), as I get downheartened easily when a bake doesn’t go quite right. The last thing I want is to lose my baking mojo and enthusiasm.

Click here to see how it went. I’m pleased to say this was a much better result than the fail. Comments are appreciated as always.

Peanut Butter Cookies

These were made in conjunction with the fudgy brownies for Alex to take with him to the Super Bowl viewing party. He wanted some American themed goodies and peanut butter was figuring highly so I made these.

I’ve never really had a taste for peanut butter but this stuff is honestly amazing! Incredibly sticky but the overwhelming taste of pure peanuts is just heavenly. I definitely couldn’t wait to cook these and see (taste!) the results.
