We watched the Bake Off contestants do battle with delicious desserts: Ian won Star Baker for the THIRD week in a row(!) while we were sorry to see funny girl Sandy leave the competition after much meringue mayhem.
Now, I’m no expert. I love a bit of baking, but I could never create anything like what the contestants managed to bake this week! Their crème brûlées looked absolutely heavenly, but I seriously doubt my ability to a) make a good one and b) bring one into the office successfully!
However, I still wanted to try my hand at something remotely… dessert-like.
So, being the world’s most notorious sweet tooth, I decided on cookies. They can be stacked, eaten alone, or served warm with ice cream (amazing). My ‘trial run’ went so well that I brought them into Very HQ. Here are a few quotes from my colleagues/judges:
Phil: Fabulous, I just enjoyed mine with a brew.
Laura: Wow, FIT!
Steve: They were really good them.
So without further ado, here’s my delicious and definitely unhealthy cookie recipe. It’s SO simple, and should make around 20 cookies.
125g softened butter
100g light brown soft sugar
125g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
220g self-raising flour
Half a tsp salt
200g chocolate chips (or whatever you fancy)
Stay tuned for even more mouth-watering recipes as the Bake Off action continues.
I hope you’re enjoying the Bake Off action as much as I am!
