The perfect treat - no cup of coffee or tea is complete without one - cookies come in all shapes and sizes with a multitude of different flavourings. There are healthy versions, such as muesli bars, and more decadent bites, such as the triple chocolate circles. Cookie dough can be prepared in advance and frozen so that you always have a mixture on hand for unexpected guests or there are recipes which take only moments to mix and a few minutes in the oven for instant appeal. Recipes of this title include: Chocolate peppermint cookies; Ginger crunch slices and Spiced Easter cookies, as well as favourites from around the world, such as Greek Kourabiedes, Jewish Rugelach and Portuguese star anise cookies.
