Salted Caramel Cookies

n

Hello loves, ❀

Hope everyone is having a lovely Thursday – ONE MORE DAY UNTIL THE WEEKEND! Woohoo, short week as it was a public holiday on Monday for the Queens birthday, so I only had a four day working week πŸ™‚

Does anyone have anything fun/exciting planned this weekend? I know I will most certainly be doing some gym classes on Saturday & Sunday, I am very excited for those.

I did pilates for the first time last night, all I can say is I have VERY tight hamstrings & I felt like an awkward pretzel. But, over time I am hoping to become more flexible as I am struggling at the moment. Pilates was good for me bc you focused on your breathing, which is a big thing for me & my anxiety.

We are here because… I MADE SALTED CARAMEL COOKIES & I want to share the recipe & some photos with you.

Baking has become such a lovely hobbie to do on the weekends, either Saturday or Sunday I love to do some baking, I feel so content when I bake πŸ™‚

Let me know if you decide to cook these, they were DELICIOUS!

You will need:

  • Salted Caramel Cookie Mix
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 egg

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees & put your mix into a bowl, crack the egg & pop it in, melt your butter & also put that in too.
  2. Start mixing w/ a wooden spoon to form a thick-like-batter, after this has been mixed start using your hands to mix the batter.
  3. Start rolling the dough to make a 3cm ball (Don’t make them too big as they will expand + flatten in the oven.
  4. Pop they tray into the oven for 25-30 mins. (My little trick here is to start watching them at about 15 mins – I take them out earlier & let them set on the cooling rack, that’s how you get soft & chewy cookies)
  5. Enjoy πŸ™‚

  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk

Icing Mix:

  • img_38523 tablespoons of soft butter

Method:

  1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees, set up your 12 patty cases on to a baking tray.
  2. Place cupcake mix, eggs, milk & butter to a bowl & mix w/ a wooden spoon, mix until you have a smooth consistency.
  3. Place a batter into patty cases (I chose to put them half way to ensure they don’t overflow in the oven)
  4. Bake for 20-25 mins (You want to keep an eye on these bc if you over cook them, they will become dry)
  5. Once they have cook, leave them on a cooling rack for approx 15 mins.
  6. Add your butter to the icing mix & start mixing till you have a smooth consistency, then pour over your cupcakes (I didn’t like the colour of the icing so I added a few drops of pink food colouring to change the colour)

I have so much to share with you but I’ll start by sharing a recipe of the yummy cupcakes I made on the weekend. (Everyone said they tasted amazing)

You will need:

  • 3 Tablespoons of Butter

img_3587-1

Icing Mix:

  • Icing Mix
  • 3 Tablespoons of Butter
  • 2 Teaspoons of Milk

Let’s do it:

  1. Pre-heat your oven to 180 degress – And, place 12 patty cases on a oven friendly tray.
  2. Place cupcake mix, eggs, milk, butter into a large bowl – Mix this so that there is no more powdery mixture & is a smooth consistency.
  3. Carefully place mixture into the 12 patty cases (Fill to about a half as the mixture will expand in the oven & you don’t want them to overflow.
  4. Bake for 20-25 mins, depending on how fast your oven is, check on these at about the 20 min mark.
  5. Once these are cooked, let these cool down whilst you prep your icing.
  6. Mix 3 tablespoons of butter & 2 teaspoons w/ your icing mix & mix this up until smooth & lather over your cupcakes (I didn’t do all my cupcakes with the icing, a few of the bad overflowy ones got the icing but didn’t make the cut for the photo, haha)
  7. And…. Enjoy πŸ™‚

I promote healthy living & good foods but this was a packet mix I couldn’t refuse to make.

Baking is very therapeutic for me, you feel accomplished after also bc you’ve created this from scratched.

You’ve watched it grow & you feel great once its done.

I would love to know what is therapeutic for you πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚Β 

Wherever you are in the world, have a lovely day ❀

Mozzarella Cheese Pastries

If you thought the spinach & ricotta pastries were easy, WELL… do I have news for you πŸ˜› These mozzarella cheese pastries are SOMETHING ELSE! This literally took me not even 5 mins to prep & this was sooooo delicious – the cheese was so stringy when eating it (stringy cheese, mm, just how I like it!)

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups of mozzarella cheese
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 8 sheets filo pastry
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
Method:

IMG_4325

1. Preheat oven to 180Β°C. Lightly grease 2 baking trays.

 

2. Cut filo pastry into desired shapes (I did mine in squares)

3. Brush pastry lightly with oil. Place mozzarella onto the filo pastry & wrap/roll the way you’d like.
4. Brush pastry with egg. (this gives the pastry a crunchy texture) Place onto baking tray.
5. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden and crisp. Place 3 onto each entree plate and serve hot.
I have started pinteresting some new recipes, stay tune for some more simple & also healthy (sometimes, hehe) recipes.
