This edition came about as I decided that I must do some baking tonight in order to wear in my new apron, and given the up and coming Hallmark holiday, I thought I would take the recipe for regular vanilla hearts and make an adjustment or two.
With the responsibility of whipping up a sweet afternoon treat for the parental unit, I decided to go with these as I know my mother loves cranberries… and understandably so; they are low in saturated fat and are a great source of vitamin E and vitamin K.
This of course means very little once they are combined with butter and sugar, however it does make me feel just that little bit better when I eat one or two more than I should. Which, in my defence, is rather hard not to do – just try it for yourself!
These make for a cute afternoon treat that pairs perfectly with a cup of coffee or tea, whatever your poison may be.
Totally did not intend for that last sentence to rhyme, but do I get bonus points anyway? (Note: 1 cup = 1 US cup)
As an avid lover of all things chocolate, I definitely put my weight behind this slice as a simple afternoon treat that is popular with just about anybody who can appreciate the flavours. On the rare days when we were blessed with money topurchase our lunch from the school canteen, chocolate rough slice was always a predominant feature on my order. I regret nothing. A layer of soft chocolate icing atop a crisp chocolate base… perfection. Well worth the sticky fingers. (Note: 1 cup = 1 US cup)
These cookies are super quick and super easy… not to mention super tasty! Three key factors that makes this recipe perfect for kids who have an interest in baking or who want a little more independence in the kitchen.
The result is a soft, chewy cookie that is bound to win hearts all over the place and leave you wanting more. A true bachelor of cookies.
With the lack of butter and salt, these cookies are a slightly healthier alternative to others. A perfect after school treat. (Note: 1 cup = 1 US cup)
I have noted that Tiramisu is offered widely across many different restaurants though I have found none of them compare to one created with love, at home… as with most things, of course. This makes for an excellent dessert at any time of the year though as it is served chilled, I love it during summer. I wish you good luck in saying no to this baby!
In my humble opinion, raspberry and lemon has got to be one of the best flavour combinations to have ever arisen. This recipe has the balance between the two pretty spot on; they are not too sickly sweet and have just the right amount of tang.
These cookies are a melt in your mouth treat, and what better way to offer your kisses to several people at once? Everybody wins. These are a perfect with a cup of coffee or tea for a little afternoon or mid-morning treat. How could you say no? (Note: 1 cup = 1 US cup)
In charge of producing something home-made for afternoon tea, I decided to have a peruse through a baking book belonging to my mother. What initially attracted me to these cookies were the cute petal designs of the cookies… so, rather typically, I forgot to actually use a cookie press in order to achieve such a cute design. Thankfully this in no way impinges on the flavour and the end result is delicious nonetheless!
Sandwiched with a thick slab of creamy goodness, these cookies are simply adorable and rather hard to turn down. (Note: 1 cup = 1 US cup)
