Christmas Cake Sunday

This year I am trying a new Christmas cake recipe. I can smell it is cooking in the oven now.  The smell of cinnamon, brandy and  a mixture of dried fruit cooking together is somehow comforting! I shall be feeding the cake with a dash of brandy over the next few weeks before icing it.

Mary Berry's chocolate chip cookies

This is a great recipe form the legendary Mary Berry. I bought some quality plain chocolate and filled the cookie dough with as much chocolate chunks as I could fit. Baked in the oven for 12 minutes. Pure heaven eaten warm as the chocolate is melted in the middle as you bite into the cookie!

Millionaire Shortbread

My absolute favorite - millionaire shortbread. Buttery base of shortbread, with a thick caramel filling and topped with white chocolate. Delicious!

Apple crumble slice

OMG bursting with mixed spices, cinnamon and nutmeg this slice of apple heaven is delicious. I have been having a slice a day as part of my daily 5 a day! I also added currants in the middle together with the apples, which made a nice combination.
