We love cookies!

One of the easiest things you can bake are cookies, easy to assemble and fast in the baking.

The most impressing ones I've seen are this Giant Toblerone Cookies
simple to do and cause quite and impression as they are simple Huge!!!!!

You can use toblerone or another normal black chocolate they come up always really tasty!

Hugeeee super duper cookies!

If you are looking for a more nutrient cookie then there is also the wonderful Oatmeal and raisin cookies from Rachel's book Bake.

The recipe is the following (makes about 30 cookies):

110g (4oz) butter, softened
110g (4oz) caster sugar
110g (4oz) soft brown sugar
1 egg
2 tbsp water
1tsp vanilla extract
250g (9oz) porridge oats
110g (4oz) self-raising flour
1 level tsp salt
110g (4oz) raisins

1. Preheat the oven to 180’C (350’F), Gas Mark 4.
2. Cream the butter in a large bowl or in an electric food mixer until soft. Add the sugars and beat until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the egg, water and vanilla extract while still beating. Reduce the speed and gently mix in the oats, flour, salt and raisins to form a dough.
3. Using your hands, roll the dough into walnut sized balls and place slightly apart on two baking trays.

4. Bake in the oven for 12-25 minutes or until light golden brown but still slightly soft in the center.
5. Allow to cool on the trays for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

They are simply yummy at any time :)
