Although I never understood everyone’s love for ginger kisses when I was younger, it’s easy to see they are a favourite among New Zealanders – but why would I make a batch of biscuits I don’t even like? Quite simply, I’ve learnt that if I never created things I didn’t like, I wouldn’t be creating much at all – and what perfect way to take something that I don’t like and turn it into something I will?
Let’s travel back in time for this post… imagine it is mid-July, 2013, and your boyfriend’s birthday is fast approaching at the end of the month. You know he loves caramel and you know he loves cheesecake, so what do you decide to make for his birthday cake?
Why, this of course!
I didn’t think so!
After great success with these simple yet delicious chocolate chip cookies, I decided to mix it up a little and add a touch more flavour to the recipe. This time it’s all about the C’s; coffee, coconut, and chunks of chocolate – all in one mouthful!
These scones are super easy and make for the perfect morning or afternoon tea on a cold and miserable day… or any sort of day really, there is just no such thing as a bad time to enjoy these beauties!
And why would you want to?
There’s something awfully comforting about sinking your teeth into a cookie, still deliciously warm and soft from the oven. Add a cup of coffee/tea/hot chocolate into the mixture and you have yourself one decent morning/ afternoon/ evening. Guaranteed.
Fresh from the oven and accompanied with nothing but a generous helping of butter, these scones are pretty hard to beat… if I may say so myself, of course!
That’s how the saying goes, right?
I had already decided that this week I would be making a ‘lemony lemon brownie’ to add to my collection, and to share with my colleagues. I love lemon and I love brownies – naturally I was rather excited to give this recipe a go… so you can only imagine my disappointment when I get to the supermarket to find there were no lemons.
