Whether you call them cookies or biscuits, these will all go down a real treat with an afternoon cuppa or a glass of milk...
Essentially these are plain biscuits, given the star treatment with icing, silver balls and anything else you care to add! Hang them on the tree or give as gifts (a great way to keep children busy too!)
You really don't want these in the house if you're watching your weight as it's impossible to eat just one! Made with chocolate and almonds, they are quite irresistible and can be made with chocolate chips for a child-friendly version.
Chocolate and ginger is a marriage made in heaven, so combine them in these irresistible little biscuits... impossible to eat just one!
This is one of three recipes for crunchies on the site - the easiest biscuits ever, you can use whatever you have to hand to invent your own version, allowing you to get creative in the kitchen!
An easy and quick way to fill the biscuit tin...but they won't last long! If you haven't got this combination of fruit and nuts simply make up your own variations.
The original recipe didn’t have sesame seeds, which is an added dimension, and we’re pleased they’re popular with children since they’re so easy to pop into a lunchbox.
Straight from the old book into the new, with not a hint of change. Same crisp crunchiness, same snap as you break one in half, and same reminder of how very much better they are homemade.
Light, almondy and chewy, most people love macaroons with their edible rice paper bases. You may like to know that, for a change, the recipe works very well with ground walnuts too (we call them Walleroons!).
I will always be grateful to the Hunter family in Cumbria who served these in their lakeside hotel, and who kindly gave me the recipe because I loved them so much.
These, because they always love them, are good for children to make. But don’t let that stop you making them for grown-ups as well.
