Cranberry, Dark Chocolate and Almond Biscuits


A Little while ago I was sent some wonderful dried cranberries from Natoora and decided to incorporate them into these deliciously moreish biscuits. I love the flavour combination of dark chocolate and sweet cranberries, and together with the ground almonds which give the biscuits a really delicate texture, they are a match made in heaven.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
