Is there anything better than a cookie?
If you’re anything like me lately, you just don’t have the time to stop and sit down and have a proper cup of tea with a proper decent gluten free biccy. I received a box of brilliant Delicious Alchemy goodies a while back and amongst all the hectic parts of my lifestyle at the moment it had been sitting on the counter top patiently waiting for me to open one of the mixes and try them out; they were wonderfully patience, no problems there!
Delicious Alchemy have had a lovely little relaunch of branding a few months back, don’t you just love their website and styling? I have to say that 90% of the time, i do buy a product if it looks good- i’m a sucker for great packaging and Delicious Alchemy’s is no exception. Although if i was to buy the product again, it would 100% have to taste good.
The mix is easy to follow, although i got a bit confused at first with how they worded the temperature and i accidentally didn’t set it to the fan temp- maybe this is something they can alter later on. (I also would have preferred the instructions on the back of the packet- but that is me really nit-picking!)
The mix went into my kitchenaid bowl alongside some melted butter and water (they’re also dairy free if you use dairy free margarine). I gave it a good slow whizz and voila, it was done! I would imagine these would be fab to make with littleuns to hand mix in a mixing bowl.
I was tempted to add in some chocolate chips or raisins but after tasting the mixture i felt it was sweet enough and i didn’t want to spoil any texture of the cookie in the oven first time around.
I divided the mixture into 10 small cookie balls and pressed them down slightly as per instructions and popped them in the oven for 18 minutes.
^That was an oven timer by the way. They came out really well. Slightly chewy in the middle- which the husband approved of- (he ate 5 in one sitting F.Y.I)
I highly recommend getting this mix, and the price (£1.99 ex. vat) is very reasonable for the minimal additional ingredients and fuss involved. Great if you’re about to have some friends over and want to bake something or simply for a rainy Sunday morning..
