Creamy Oreo and Chocolate Chip Cookie Squares


When I saw these on this blog I knew I had to try them. Extremely unhealthy but I just couldn't resist, and seeing as I'm on my holidays I saw no reason not to indulge! Chocolate chip cookies covered in oreo cream and topped with chocolate. I'm not lying when I say these are absolutely amazing. Very indulgent and obviously to be eaten in moderation, but I will definitely be baking again. You won't regret making these!




Recipe

115g unsalted butter, softened
65g granulated sugar
100g light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
190g plain flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
350g chocolate chips
30 Oreo cookies
100g cream cheese

Cream butter and both sugars together until smooth. 

Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix to the butter/sugar mixture.



Add the flour, bicarb of soda and salt and gently fold into mixture until combined. 



Mix in 150g of chocolate chips, I used a bar of chocolate and cut it into chunks (buying the chips is so much more expensive!)


Pour into the prepared/greased tin (about 8 by 8 square tin). Chill in the fridge for about 15 mins.


Cook on 180c for about 20 minutes until golden brown on top. 


Whilst that is cooling, break up the oreos and add the cream cheese. Mix together until creamy and smooth. 



Add this to the cooled cookie. Let this cool in the fridge for about half an hour, then melt the remaining 200g chocolate and add this on top. 


Let this set for about half an hour in the fridge, and then cut into around 16 squares. Enjoy!

Lemon Drizzle Cake

We've had gorgeous weather here in England this week and I really wanted to bake something summery. I love lemon flavoured things and so I was instantly drawn towards lemon drizzle cake, a really light and lemony cake that you feel like eating in hot weather. This recipe just uses a basic cake recipe and is drizzled with a simple lemon sugar mixture. Perfect for a summer time treat! 


Recipe
4 eggs
225g self raising flour
225g margarine
225g caster sugar
Zest of 2 lemons
For the drizzle
85g caster sugar
Juice of 1 1/2 lemon


Preheat the oven to 180/160c fan. Firstly, cream together the margarine and sugar until creamy.
Add the eggs and whisk into the butter/sugar mixture until combined and smooth. 


Add the flour and gently fold into the mixture. 

Finely grate the zest of 2 lemons and add to the mixture. 


Add to a prepared loaf tin and bake for about 40 minutes until golden brown and a skewer comes out clean.


While the cake is still warm, make the drizzle by combining the lemon juice and sugar. Pour all over cake. 



Enjoy!
