Millionaires Cookie Bars!

IngredientsCookie Bars

  • 275 g Plain Flour
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1 tbsp Corn Flour
  • 115 g Unsalted Butter
  • 55 g Granulated Sugar
  • 135 g Light Brown Sugar
  • 1 medium Egg
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 100 g White Chocolate Chips
  • 100 g Milk Chocolate Chips
  • 100 g Dark Chocolate Chips

Homemade Caramel

  • 200 g Unsalted Butter
  • 3 tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 4 tbsp Golden Syrup
  • 397 g Condensed Milk (one tin)

Chocolate Decoration

  • 100 g White Chocolate
  • 100 g Milk Chocolate
  • 100 g Dark Chocolate

InstructionsFor the Cookie Bars

  1. Preheat your oven to 190C/170C Fan and line a 9x9inch Square Tin with parchment paper and leave to the side for now.
  2. Whisk/Mix the Plain Flour Bicarbonate Salt and Cornflour together so its evenly distributed – leave to the side.
  3. In a larger bowl melt the butter. Add in the two sugars and whisk for about 2 minutes so the sugar starts to dissolve and the mixture is smooth. Add in the Egg and the Vanilla and whisk again briefly till smooth. (I used an electric whisk)
  4. Add in the Dry Ingredients and the Chocolate Chips and mix with a spatula till a thick cookie dough is formed.
  5. Press the mixture into the bottom of the tin. Bake the traybake in the oven for 18-22 minutes until the top of the cookie bake looks ‘dry’!
  6. Leave to cool whilst doing the next stages.

For the Caramel

  1. In a large saucepan pour the Condensed Milk Unsalted Butter Sugar and Golden Syrup and melt on a medium heat till the Sugar has dissolved – stir frequently to stop anything from catching.
  2. Once the Sugar has dissolved turn the heat up high and let the mixture come to boiling point and boil for 5-7 minutes stiring constantly so that the mixture doesn’t catch. BE CAREFUL as the mixture is VERY hot and can burn you if it splashes back!
  3. The mixture will be ready when it has changed to a slightly darker golden colour and has thickened to a soft fudge texture!
  4. Pour the caramel onto the Cookie Bars and leave to set for one-two hours on the side.

For the Chocolate

  1. Melt your three chocoaltes carefully till smooth – I personally do this in the microwave.
  2. Drizzle over the caramel in a swirly pattern or however you fancy and leave to set fully on the side or in the fridge.

Recipe Notes

  • This will keep in an airtight container for at least 1 week – if they last that long!
  • **If you struggle to cut your shortbread and tray bakes without the chocolate cracking on top set it at room temperature rather than in the fridge and it’ll be softer so therefore won’t crack when you cut it!
  • Using a tinned caramel in place of making your own will NOT work. Tinned caramels do not set so it ll be messy.
  • I don t store these in the fridge as it dries the cookie out but if you want to you can just beware.

Strawberry Rolls With Vanilla Glaze And A Giveaway

IngredientsFor the Strawberry Filling:

  • 1 1/2 cups fresh strawberries chopped into tiny pieces
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch

For the Dough:

  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour divided plus extra for dusting
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon table salt
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant dry yeast (1 standard package)
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup milk (I used almond milk here but any milk should work fine)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg at room temperature

For the Vanilla Glaze:

  • 1 cup of confectioners sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of milk OR heavy cream more if needed to achieve desired consistency

InstructionsTo make the Strawberry Filling:

  1. Place the chopped strawberries in a small saucepan over medium-heat. Cook for 6-8 minutes stirring constantly or until the strawberries are very soft and their juices have been released. Add in the sugar and cornstarch and continue to cook – and stir – for another 1-2 minutes. The mixture will thicken up dramatically during this time. Remove pan from heat and transfer the filling into a small bowl. Chill filling completely before use.

To make the Dough:

  1. In a large bowl combine 2 1/4 cups of the flour the granulated sugar salt and yeast; mix well to evenly combine. Set aside.
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat warm the water milk and butter until the butter is completely melted and the mixture is hot to the touch but not scalding (it should be between 110-115 degrees F). Stir the liquid mixture into the flour mixture. Add in the egg then add in at least 1/3 of additional flour. You may need to add up to 1/2 cup of additional flour. Your dough is at the right consistency when it gently pulls away from the side of the bowl and is slightly elastic in consistency.
  3. Scoop the dough out and transfer it to a lightly floured work surface; gently knead the dough by hand for 3 minutes. Lightly spray a clean bowl with non-stick spray then set the ball of dough inside. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside to rest for 20 minutes.
  4. After the 20 minutes have passed roll the dough out into a 14×8 rectangle. Spread the cooled strawberry filling on top leaving a 1 boarder around the edges. Roll the dough up tightly along the edge (jellyroll/cigar style) letting it rest on the seem. Cut the roll into 10-11 pieces (I got exactly 11) then arrange them in a lightly greased 9 round or square baking dish. Loosely cover the rolls with plastic wrap and set them in a warm draft-free place to rise for 1 1/2 hours.
  5. Once the rolls have doubled in size preheat the oven to 375 degrees (F). When the oven comes to temperature bake the rolls for 25-30 minutes or until slightly browned. After 15 minutes you ll want to rotate the pan in the oven and cover the rolls with aluminum foil to avoid heavy browning.

To make the Vanilla Glaze:

  1. In a small bowl combine the confectioners sugar vanilla and cream; whisk until smooth adding more cream as needed to reach desired consistency. Drizzle over the rolls right before serving.
  2. Unglazed rolls can be frozen for up to 2 months.
