There’s no necessity to use leftover marzipan in this recipe – By all means, open a brand new packet (or make your own) and be as generous as you like! I am aware though, that at this time of year, some people are left with the ends of marzipan that they have used to make their Christmas cake. This recipe for Cherry Bakewell Cookies uses a small amount of both marzipan and cherries. I love the thriftiness of it.
Very similar in texture and cooking method to my Sunshine Cookies recipe – The joy is in the eating and how quick these cookies come together. Be warned, this is a very sticky mixture. Your hands will get messy!
Bake of the Week
Thanks to Jenny for hosting last week’s #BakeoftheWeek linky whilst I was chilling out at Center Parcs. I cannot believe it was only a week ago!
As expected it was a quieter week on the linky as everyone got back into the swing of work and school. I know I’ve been desperately tired this week and struggling to become accustomed to the routine until today.
My featured bake for last week comes from Cook Style with her magnificent Chocolate Mousse Cake. Anca made this cake to celebrate a whole decade since she became vegetarian – Huge congratulations to you! As usual, your cake was gorgeous too.
Jenny from Mummy Mishaps reminded me that I need to get out our slow cooker – Its the perfect time of year for getting home from our super long school run to a delicious dish. This week, Jenny shares her Slow Cooker Toffee Apple Cake
I love the story behind Curly’s Cooking’s Brioche & Christmas Pudding Bread & Butter Pudding – We too have a Christmas Pudding lying unused in our cupboard!
I love the tales from Apply to Face about her hormones – A brilliant read! Her Best Bread Rolls are pretty darn amazing too!
Our linky is open again for another week of baking. Up to 2 entries per blog are allowed and all will be shared on Twitter, Pinterest, Stumble upon & Yummly. We link to all entries in the following week’s roundup too. Please add the badge to your post (old posts are allowed) to share the #BakeoftheWeek love.
