I do bake some things regularly like cakes and biscuits but I'm not a fervent cake decorator or builder of cake scenes! I will leave those to the artistic bakers.
I make cookies, biscuits, crackers and healthy bars in some form every week, we like a go-to snack and whipping up a small batch of something home-made is an excellent way of knowing what is in them and usually so fast too.
These Walnut & Sultana Cookies are a favourite here and never last more than a couple of days!
Walnut & Sultana Cookies
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Baking Time: 15 minutes
Pre-heat your oven to 180C/160C fan (I have a fan oven)
100g unsalted butter, cool and cubed
200g self-raising flour
70g soft brown sugar
100g walnuts, chopped
1 medium egg, beaten
Rub the butter and flour together with your fingers until it resembles fine breadcrumbs (I love this bit!).
Stir in the sugar, walnuts and sultanas.
Stir in the beaten egg into the dry ingredients, then take small dollops of the mixture and shape into cookies and pop onto a greased and lined baking tray.
Bake for around 15 minutes or until lightly brown.
Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
