Yummy cookies....

I have to say that I am more than a bit partical to a spot of baking. Any baking will do, usually though it includes chocolate because I am, I will confess a complete chocoholic. I know it's not good but I love it. Now confession over!
I was lucky enough to win a giveaway hosted by Hookin with LaaLaa, which included an amazing book, The Buttercup Bake Shop Cook Book. Even the name gets your mouth watering :), and I wasn't disappointed, it is full of yummy recipes.
I also received some fabulous chocolate in my swap parcel from Craftysmiles, well that got my mind working.....maybe I could use the chocolate in my baking....yay! So I had a good look through the receipes and choose Thumbprint Cookies. In the recipe it says use jam but I thought a square of chocolate would be just a good!


My cook book, chocolate and really cool UJ oven glove also included in the giveaway


My little cookies all ready to go into the oven.


And here they are, even if I do say so myself they are scrummy. I forgot to mention that I can't eat wheat so have subsituted the normal plain flour for wheat free and you wouldn't know. They taste a bit like shortbread.

I would like to ask my bloggy friends do you know of a good website/info source that can convert the American weights to UK. I think I got it right because they taste great but I wasn't 100% sure I had it right.

Well I'm up bright and early this morning so that's a good start, both kids are at school today so hopefully I should have a productive morning, she says! xxx
