Inspired by the show, I decided to do some baking one cold Sunday afternoon.
I found a simple-looking recipe on BBC’s Good Food website. I did check out some of the vegan versions but there were so many ingredients that I didn’t have in my cupboards that I decided that they could be a future project!
So I assembled the ingredients and set to work…
Add the vanilla essence and eggs
Sieve in the self-raising flour (I couldn’t find self-raising flour in Germany so had regular flour with baking powder!)
Then add your chosen ingredients - I went for hazelnuts and chocolate chunks but you can add almost anything you want - fruit pieces, chocolates and nuts.
Try not to eat too much of the yummy mixture at this stage!
Mix together and then form into balls and place on a greaseproof paper on a baking tray.
They only take about 8-10 minutes to cook…and the delicious cookie smell fills your kitchen!
Then cook them on a wire rack.
