Stained Glass Cookies

Stained Glass Cookies

This is a fun cookie decoration technique and makes you look pretty pro you can select candy flavours to complement the cookie or do this with a neutral flavoured dough.

Rose Water Glaze

Rose Water Glaze

Another variation on America’s Test Kitchen’s all purpose glaze, I like their use of cream cheese, it helps mellow the sugar. This variation is just right to go on a flavoured cookie without overpowering it. If the cookie is more of a neutral flavour, there’s room to intensify the glaze with more rosewater.

Banana Trail Mix Muffins

Banana Trail Mix Muffins

This is basically the America’s Test Kitchen recipe for banana bread muffiins with no added sugar, I added chocolate drizzle on top cos Mary Berry broke me for Banana bread without chocolate and it didn’t seem right to put a crunchy sugar topping on muffins that have no added sugar. I also split up the work over two cooking sessions.

Rich Rolled Cardamom Cookies

Rich Rolled Cardamom Cookies

The classic Joy of Cooking rich rolled sugar cookies – they’re tender, not crisp. I wanted to make something a little different from the standard sugar cookie. Enter ground cardamom.

Cookie Decorating Glaze

Cookie Decorating Glaze

This is America’s Test Kitchen’s “Easy All Purpose Glaze” just slightly different way of making it lemon flavoured – going for “subtle” to not over power the cardamom cookies. Variations here too!
