Picked up some tasty cookie bits and a challenge at Blarney Farmers Market recently. After the tasting the samples, I bought a bag by Angelfoods which contained most of the ingredients and all the instructions needed to make 18 Spiced Date and Sultana Cookies.

Had the gear.  The opportunity came this dreary Bank Holiday Monday. The alternative was watching St Mirren and Hamilton Accies on the telly - I did break away from the baking to see the only goal!

Added 4 ozs of butter and one medium egg to the mix and it was easy after that. Fifteen minutes in the oven and soon afterwards was doing the taste test. Not bad at all. Cookies can be stored for up to one week. Don't reckon they’ll last that long! By the way, Spiced Oat and Sultana is just one of a selection of cookie flavours available in this handy kit form. Watch out for them!
