OHHH YESSSS….These Double Chocolate Chip Cookies are possibly up there as my very favourites. This is a perfect day for some cosy baking. Let me know how you get on.. see Recipe below from my book Rachel’s Everyday Kitchen , @harpercollinsire @harpercollinsuk #baking #cosy #cosybakingday #doublechocolate #doublechocolatechip #doublechocolatechipcookies Makes 20 large cookies-never enough


225g butter, softened

325g caster sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla extract

225g flour

75g cocoa powder

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

¼ tsp salt 175g dark chocolate chips

 

Preheat the oven to 175’C.
Line 3 baking trays with parchment paper .

Place the butter in a mixing bowl and beat until very soft. Add in the sugar and beat to mix well. Continue to beat and add the eggs in one by one followed by the vanilla extract. Sift in the sifted flour, cocoa powder, bicarbonate of soda and salt and mix in until combined.

With wet hands, form the dough into balls the size of a golf ball (or use 2 soup spoons to scoop onto the tray) . Arrange on the tray , about 6 or 7 on each tray, leaving space for the cookies to spread.

If you’re using a fan oven, cook all three trays at once (at 150’ FAN ‘C). Cook for 9-11 minutes until they look slightly cracked on top. Remove from the oven and allow to cool for a few minutes, then remove from the tray and place on a wire rack to cool completely. PS- You can just bake a few and keep the cookie dough in the fridge rolled up into a salami shape in parchment paper, then slice to bake when you fancy. 🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪

Dairygold Classic Scones

 

12 mins
 

Plain scones are the cornerstone of Irish afternoon tea, especially when spread with Dairygold and a dollop of jam!

Ingredients

  • 175g Dairygold Baking Block
  • 900g plain flour
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 3 eggs – hold a little back to glaze
  • 425ml milk to mix – hold 100ml back until needed

Instructions

Preheat your oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mk 4.

Sieve the flour, sugar and baking powder together into a large mixing bowl.

Rub the Dairygold Baking Block into the dry ingredients until you’ve formed a breadcrumb texture.

In a separate bowl or jug, mix your eggs and milk together, then pour into the larger bowl, making a well in its centre.

Continue to mix until you have formed a soft dough, using the extra milk if needed.

Remove your dough from the bowl and knead lightly on a floured board before rolling it out to 1 inch in thickness.

Cut the dough out into rounds and brush them with the remaining egg to glaze.

Place on a baking sheet and bake in your preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.

To serve, spread with Dairygold and strawberry or raspberry jam.
