Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

How do you like your cookies? With a bit of crunch? Or at the other end of the spectrum, with only a crisp edge to hold together a soft, gooey middle? Personally, I like a not-too-soft, not-too-hard kind of cookie. Just right – a Goldilocks cookie?

Garibaldi Biscuits (Currant Cookies)

Garibaldi Biscuits (Currant Cookies)

Personally I haven't been feeling that Christmassy, until last night when our tree went up which Max (my dog - to the unacquainted) duly had a good bark at. Anyway, today I've got a real gem for you. These vegan florentines are so decadent and elegant they basically scream Christmas. I would seriously recommend them as a Christmas present, but I do realise I'm a bit late in publishing this post! Perhaps if you have any presents to give after Christmas, like I will, to other relatives, a few days later?!
