Slice, bake AND eat.
Have you ever discovered the joy of Slice and Bake Cookies? Buttery shortbread cookies that can be sliced and baked in the oven at any time of the day or night?
They’re the answer to every cookie lovers dream ❤️
Remember my Peppermint Chocolate Shortbread Cookies? I love to make those at Christmas, but these Twix Slice and Bake Cookies can be made every day of the year.
Buttery cookies stuffed with chocolate caramel Twix bars, making them extra sweet and sticky, with pockets of gooey caramel in every single bite.
If you’re a fan of Twix bars, you’ll love these easy-to-make cookies!
Essentially a shortbread cookie dough, these Twix Slice and Bake Cookies are SO easy to make. With only 5 ingredients (and no eggs), they come together in about 15 minutes!
Roll them up and pop them in the fridge for at least one hour.
Then whenever, WHENEVER, the cookie craving hits, you can just slice the cookie dough and bake the cookies in the oven.
You can bake just 1 cookie or 10 cookies or the WHOLE batch. It’s completely up to you.
You can store the cookie dough in the fridge or freezer for when friends pop over unexpectedly (does that happen anymore?) or when you’ve run out of dessert and are in need of an after-dinner treat. #reallife
It was so nice to bake this weekend after being away for a week in Tokyo! Husband and I absolutely loved Japan. We had so much fun exploring the city – and what a massive city it is.
I’ll be sharing my favourite things to do and eat in Tokyo very soon, in case you’re thinking of taking a trip. In the meantime, let’s EAT cookies!
