Gluten Free Brownie Cookies


Gluten Free Brownie Cookies
Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie Cookies - these delicious cookies are so easy to make, perfect for the Christmas Holidays or to give as edible gifts! by BirdsParty;com @birdsparty #cookies #brownies #browniecookies #christmasbaking #christmascookies #chocolate #recipes #glutenfree

Christmas is when I bake the most. Every weekend, it's a new cookie recipe I like to try. And these days, I find myself reaching for my gluten free brownie cookies over and over again! 

These brownie cookies are fudgy in the center and slightly crisp on the edges. They pack a huge chocolate flavor and have that umami note that make it my (and my family's) favorite cookies EVER!

I love brownies. And cookies. So the idea of combining both brownies AND cookies into an easy-to-make recipe, is for me, the embodiment of Holiday baking 😉

Stained Glass Cookies Recipe with Caramel

Stained Glass Cookies Recipe with Caramel

I recently saw a recipe for stained glass cookies made with hard candy or boiled sweets. They looked so pretty, but because I'm not a huge fan of those candies, I decided to make my own stained glass Christmas cookies using hard caramels instead.  I chose regular-flavor hard caramels, as well as coffee and lemon flavored ones for a more "grown-up" twist on this recipe. The result is a less transparent cookie for the opaque caramel, but that tastes infinitely better in my opinion! 😉

Homemade Lime Marmalade Recipe & Printable Gift Tags

Homemade Lime Marmalade Recipe & Printable Gift Tags

This year, I decided to scale things down a bit. Therefore, I will spend less time scouring the shops to buy gifts, in favor of handmade or homemade presents. Not only this is infinitely less stressful, but it give me much more pleasure to make something by hand, helps me pass the time, and is far better for my wallet too! 😉 Hence this delicious, handmade (or homemade) lime marmalade , which is perfect to include in Holiday food hampers, to give to neighbors, as Christmas stocking fillers, or to add to your festive cheese boards at home!

Bakewell Tart Recipe with Store Cupboard Ingredients

Fall rhymes with pies and tarts, am I right? All that wonderful, seasonal produce is just begging to be included in the most comforting recipes. But to be honest, I don't always have those pretty farmer's market fresh fruit and veg to hand when I fancy a slice of pie (or tart). So this is where my  Bakewell Tart recipe comes in SO handy! This tart recipe uses all store cupboard (shop bought) ingredients, is super easy to make and comes together in a flash!

Gluten Free Banana Bread Recipe

Gluten Free Banana Bread Recipe

Now that school has started, I find myself making this gluten-free banana bread in batches on the weekend, and serving it up for breakfast, snack and dessert throughout the week! This is such a quick and easy recipe to make, not to mention that it's also gluten free (my husband is gluten intolerant) and is super nutritious too! I like to serve it with fresh fruit, yogurt or cream cheese, and a drizzle of honey for a wholesome start to our day. But in all honesty, this banana bread is pretty tasty on its own, and needs nothing else. Apart from maybe a cup of coffee on the side? 😉

A Seaside Inspired Tablescape and 3 BBQ Recipes

A Seaside Inspired Tablescape and 3 BBQ Recipes

Summer rhymes with BBQ and eating outdoors, so we've been cooking most of our evening meals on the BBQ this summer. It's a bliss not to have the oven on inside the house, and somehow, food just tastes so much better al-fresco, don't you think? So a few weeks ago, we decide on a baked version of the classic shrimp boil. But because it's cooked on a sheet pan on the barbecue...we called it BBQ shrimp.
