Gave these a quick go last night! Dipped in chocolate and decorated 🙂 The hard part was getting the sticks in without breaking the biscuits!
This is most definitely a new fave!
120 g of biscuits, digestives work the best
75 g of butter
675 g of cream cheese
1 397 g tin of condensed sweetened milk
200 g of chocolate chips
2 teaspoons of vanilla essence
1 teaspoon of plain flour
Step One: Preheat oven to 150 degrees or gas mark 2. Crush the digestive biscuits and mix with melted butter. Press to the bottom of a spring form tin. Put in the fridge to set.
Step Two: Beat the cream cheese until it is soft and smooth to use. Slowly add the condensed milk until combined. Then add the eggs and vanilla essence.
Step Three: Coat the chocolate chips with flour, this helps them be evenly distributed so they don’t all sink to the bottom! Mix 2/3 into the mixture and add mixture on top of the biscuit base. Sprinkle the rest of the chocolate chips on top.
Step Four: Bake in the oven for one hour. When finished turn oven off and open door slightly. Leave to cool like this for one to two hours before moving to the fridge. This stops cracks from appearing.
Yep, I think these are amazing.
I love good old Tolkien. I’m sure i saw this on Pinterest once and thought they could be easily made with the family sugar cookie recipe! They went down very well, although I was told by my partner that he imagined the door a darker shade of green…no complaints on the taste however!
If you are not that much of a fan of the books/films, this is still a pretty yummy sugar cookie recipe and you can use any cookie cutter and decorate however you want!
- 100g unsalted butter, softened
- 100g caster sugar
- 1 egg, beaten
- 275g plain flour
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
Step by step:
Step One: Preheat the oven to the 190 degrees. Line a baking tray with grease proof paper
Step Two: Cream the butter and sugar together. It should be light and fluffy!
Step Three: Beat in the vanilla and egg, little by little until all combined
Step Four: Stir in flour until its looking like a dough
Step Five: Roll the dough out onto a slightly floured surface. It should be about 1 cm thick. Using any biscuit cutters you fancy cut out your shapes!
Step Six: Bake for about 8 – 10 minutes. Let them harden a little before you finally cool them on a wire rack
Step Seven: Decorate however you fancy!
