Cookies are quite simply, the bomb! There’s nothing better than baking a tray of fresh cookies, especially when you have a house full of family and friends popping round. The great smell just gets everywhere. So we’ve made whipping up a batch super simple with our cookie mixes. You. Are. Welcome! Although if you want to go from scratch, then you can whip up some Easter cookies using one of our other recipes here. You may just want to have a fiddle with the flavour.
This recipe is pretty simple and doesn’t need any strict measuring. It’s more inspiration to get you going!
All you will need for this recipe is;
- 1 original cookie mix
- 110 oil – coconut, olive or vegetable oil all work
- 2-3 tsp cinnamon
- Dried fruit – chopped dates, sultanas, raisins etc. Either one or a mix of however much you like in your cookies.
- Your favourite nuts chopped up (quantity is however much you want to add) – we used almonds in ours. If you want, you can roast them first and bring out the great flavour!
- Whatever you want to decorate them with! Like we said, this is more inspiration for you to do what you want.
So just follow the instructions with the mix (unless you are going for the recipe, in which case just follow the method but leave out the lemon and lavender). Add in the cinnamon, dried fruit and chopped nuts before baking.
You can either shape in to cookies with your hands or by using cutters. The cookies can’t be rolled and cut, so you need to hold the cutter on the lined baking tray, fill with the cookie mix and then flatten whilst holding the cutter still. Then carefully lift it up and the cookie will stay in the shape.
Then just go ahead and cook as per the instructions and leave to cool! Finally, get fancy with your decorations. You can even go so far as to make a cookie pop! To do this, you’ll need to use a fair amount of chocolate in the middle if you are using a plastic cake pop stick. If you are using a flat ice lolly stick then it’s alot easier as you can lie it flat between the 2 cookies with no gaps. Once they have set, add extra chocolate around the side to hide where the cookies meet. The ultimate cookie pop! This recipe has great potential for you to use up your Easter eggs!
