Heart-Shaped Jam Cookies

So these cookies were supposed to be my Valentines Day plan, put them in pretty jars and give them as gifts to my family and friends but when my jar quest failed so did my cookie plan. Baked them today because i’ve been feeling slightly overwhelmed and baking keeps me sane and it is also healthier than retail therapy. My mum is a hardcore cookie fan so she was extremely excited about these to the point of saying “I love you” before every bite. I know some hearts look weird and out of shape but hey, no heart is perfect right?

Sister: How did you make them?

Me: Cut out a small heart on one cookie, spread jam on the one without the cut-out heart and then sandwich them together!

Sister: Oh that’s it? *Unimpressed*

These cookies are such pretty  and simple treats that will make anyones day. They definitely made mine.

Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies

Decided to bake Nutella Chocolate Chip Cookies to celebrate World Nutella Day yesterday! Oh Nutella, you truly make the world a happier and yummier place. I went through a couple of recipes online before finally settling on one and the cookies turned out great. Too yummy and so easy to make! The recipe only required four ingredients, flour, egg, chocolate chips and of course Nutella. I was a little skeptical at first “What!? No sugar!?!”, but I decided to trust that all that Nutella would be sweet enough and it was. Just writing about it is making me want to walk down to my kitchen and grab the whole tin.

Recipe here! 

Enjoy xx

Milo Crunch

I imagined a recipe called Milo Crunch to have more Milo than anything else so I surprised and apprehensive when i saw that the recipe involved only 2 1/2 teaspoons of Milo and 250g of dessicated coconut. Even after slightly reducing the amount of desiccated coconut the taste of it still overpowered the Milo and i would have preferred it the other way round. They still tasted good though, wasn’t jumping up and down about them but they tasted good, maybe next time i’ll add in some rice krispies.
