Thanks to yet another typical English rainy day i decided to try my luck with some baking!
My mum recently got me this cookery book for cakes + cookies, a long story short, my family abanded me for 2 weeks to go to turkey last month and i was left to fend for myself :( Turns out i actually enjoyed abit of cooking so she got me this cupcake book!

I thought the cover looks so pretty it just makes you wanna make something!

Although there was some quite strange ideas i found, like vodka cookies + cheese & bacon cupcakes! Slightly odd but i don't think i'll be trying those in a hurry! Although i think i might have to try the baileys one ;) Gotta love abit of baileys!

This was the recipe which i followed + decided to change the chocolate chips to fudgey bits instead :) Also bare in mind some of the ingredients are different as it is a slimming recipe appropriate for people on diets if not then just change the sweetener to normal sugar ect.

Makes 18, Ready in about 25 Mins

♥ 6oz/170 Self raising flour
♥ 3oz/85g Low fat spread suitable for baking (Flora light)
♥ 12 TBSP Artificial sweetener
♥ 2 ½ oz / 71g Chocolate chips
♥ 3 TBSP fat free fromage frais
♥ 1 Egg yolk

1) Pre heat oven to 180C / 350F/GAS 4 and line a baking sheet with baking paper. Sift the flour into a bowl, add the spread and rub into the flour, using your fingertips, until it resembles breadcrumbs. Sprinkle over sweetener and mix.

2) Add the chocolate chips, fromage frais and egg yolk, stir then knead with your hands to form a soft dough. Divide into 18 portions and roll each one into a ball. Place the dough balls on the baking sheet and using the back of a damp fork, lightly press down to form cookie shapes.

3) Bake in the oven for 12 - 15 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and place on a wire rack to cool before serving.
