It’s that busy time of year, full of celebration and festive fun in my house and honestly, I just haven’t had the time to sit, write and publish any new content. My draft folder is full but as it’s Christmas time I am now saving them until New Year. I had planned a few Christmas related posts to share with you all but I have just been posting on my main Instagram “all things Christmas”.
With only 3 more sleeps until Christmas, the festive fun and baking has commenced in my kitchen and as we are spending Christmas day at my Mum’s, I have just been concentrating on baking sweet yummy treats. I’ve already baked a batch of mince pies, you can find my easy recipe here. We had some candy canes left over from decorating our christmas tree, so yesterday we used them in our white chocolate cookies bake.
These soft and slightly gooey in the centre cookies are so simple to throw together and take next to no time to bake. This recipe is so easy that you can even get the kids to give you a hand to create these family favourite cookies.
