Cookies......



There's nothing quite like a full cookie jar! Granted they don't stay full for long in our house, but I do have a fleeting moment of satisfaction when I first put  a fresh batch of home baked biscuits on to the sideboard.




Obviously I love to cook and when I feel like baking - but not looking to do anything too complicated or fancy - I turn to a biscuit or cookie recipe. There's something very satisfying about mixing up a cookie dough, rolling it and cutting out shapes - whilst listening to the radio in a warm cosy kitchen.




Here are some of my favourite recipes and the usual ones I turn to for 'everyday' biscuits....

 
Lavender and Lemon Biscuits



 If your looking for something gluten free try these Florentines......

These cookies always feel healthy - even though there probably not! - with oatmeal and apricots in them ........


Apricot and Oatmeal Cookies


And finally my favourite treat of all ....... flapjacks.....


Honey Flapjacks


Have a great start to your week - and keep that cookie jar full!
