Salmon Puff pastry

Ahh..puff pastry is tooo cool~!! Its perfect for a late dinner when you're not bothered to cook anything!

I topped the pastry triangles with some luscious salmon and fresh salad this time. Amazing!! - I think I will prefer these ones than the chicken one; theres something to it that makes it ever so indulging.
Heres a picture to get your mouth watering :P

Chicken puff pastry

Nom nom nom....It has been a tiring week and mum wasn't too bothered to make dinner and so I stepped in and made her a lovely, hot chicken pastry (: Puff pastry came out puffy and perfect like always and every bite was sensational. 

Be sure to slice the the chicken thin enough  so it can cook before the pastry starts to burnt. Top the pastry up with some lovely sweetcorn and tomatoes and kick in a handful of parmesan cheese. Add some lemon juice to "zing" up the flavours; and you're done!

Back to the classics - Choc chip cookies

I've had quite a break from baking recently due to all sorts of excuses HOWEVER I've managed to bake these classic choc chip cookies seeing as the cookie jar was left empty for a good few weeks (although topped up with custard creams now and then). And after baking these cookies, I don't think I can part away from baking for this long again - I really do miss it :') 

Chocolate Chip cookies (for about 18 cookies)

70g caster sugar
115g softened butter
140g plain flour
1 egg
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1/4 tsp salt
175g choc chips
70g soft brown sugar


Preheat oven to 190 C/375 F/ Gas mark 5. Beat the butter with both lots of sugar until creamy. Break the egg in and beat until smooth. Add the vanilla and mix it in.

Add the flour, salt and bicarb into the mixture, a little at a time. Stir everything together until well combined. Add in the choc chips.

Butter the baking trays. Spoon small mounds of the mixture on, leaving quite big spaces in between. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes until golden brown. Move onto wire rack and cool.
