One of the most well received things I baked this week was actually from a premade mix! Not you every day Betty Crocker supermarket mix, but a wonderful jar mix from Baked by me.
Baked by Me is a company based in the North East of England which specialises in cookie/biscuit mixes. Their lovingly prepared mixes are made from the finest of ingredients and would make the perfect gift for someone special (who loves to bake).
I ordered the Oatmeal and Raisin cookies, as they are a particular favourite of the boyfriend. He has been very patient and understanding of my bad mood recently so deserved a special treat.
Once the mixture had chilled in the fridge for 30 minutes, I simply shaped them into walnut sized balls and place them on a lined baking tray.
12-15 minutes later my house smelled like pure happiness and these little beauties were ready.
They were very soft when they came out, but I was patient as the instructions suggested and once they were fully cooled we tested them...
They were just perfect, a good crunch on the outside, soft and ever so slightly chewy in the middle, the plump raisins were studded throughout and the cinnamon flavour was perfectly complimentary.
An added bonus to this lovely cookie mix, the great quality jar you are left with! Mine is now sat proudly on a shelf filled with ground almonds! So very useful.
I would highly recommend these mixes if your looking for a lovely gift for someone, they have a lot of great flavours like, toblerone, malteaser, caramel mocha, white choc chip... to name but a few. To see their full range do check out their website here.
I recieved my cookie mix for free for the purposes of this review
