Christmas Cookies (09/12/22)

This week I made some of the nicest cookies I have ever eaten! So simple and tasty. It’s a flapjacky (new word!) Christmas cookie treat! They’re from The Hebridean Bakers cook book and I am very excited that he is guesting on my show this afternoon. His books are gorgeous and the photographs of his food are so much better than mine 😉. You can make your own mincemeat and Coinneach has added a fab recipe that you can use and then add to the cookie mix. Again, if you make the recipe, please take a pic and pop it in the comments. Let me know what you think.
