Chopped nuts make cookies taste wonderful. But ground nuts make cookies taste divine. Almonds, pecan, macadamia and peanuts all are good candidates for this recipe but I tried this with cashews. Cashews has a unique taste and I find the texture close to that of macadamia and I was curious to find out what sort

Adopted from women’s weekly ‘Beautiful biscuits’, this biscuit both looks and tastes classy. It has the shortbread texture along with a subtle coffee hint which marries so well with the chocolate coating.I loved the idea of dipping biscuit in melted chocolate.

Whenever there is leftover nuts from a recipe, I always make nut butter . Nuts could go bad unless toasted or vacuum sealed.

Cookies, my all-time favourite snack to make. Mix in some butter, brown sugar, flour, eggs and a handful of chocolate chips and there you go.
