The cookie base is a little bit toffee’ish in flavour. You will only reach that toffee stage though if you leave them in the oven until they are a rich golden colour. Take them a little beyond what you normally would with a cookie, but stand by the oven for those last 5 minutes and please don’t be tempted to walk away – or you may run the risk of burning these little discs of delight.
Let’s talk about the icing. I’ve used Mrs Fields in this case as it yields excellent consistency when it comes to decorating. If you would rather make your own, please do so and I’ve included my list of more natural and healthy icing recipes here.
Icing the cookies is the fun part and decorate with anything that takes your fancy. Get the kids involved and you will have a fun afternoon on your hands. Nip on over here to see my speedy icing video .
