Home Sweet Home Bakealong 66(?): Syrup Crunch Cookies

I am not sure what number I’m on. I think it’s 66 but I got the ingredients for what I thought was 65 (cookies and cream cake) and then realised that it should be Red Velvet Roulade. So I’m ...

I nearly didn’t make this since it’s exactly the same as  Cherry Pie (no 31) but with a different fruit. This seemed rather cheeky to me and given that we’re not big fruit pie fans in this h...

Beckie is way ahead of me at the moment.  I’ve been baking – just not stuff from here. Actually. I haven’t been baking that much, which makes me sad. It was great to get back to it with thes...
