I don’t really do much in the way of baking. I like cooking savoury meals and I can produce a three course meal for a dinner party but I always go for an easy dessert. I am not really a baker even though I love watching “The Great British Bake Off” but I have recently bought Jamie Oliver’s latest book “5 Ingredients”.

I love the idea of recipes that don’t need an, arm’s length, list of ingredients. I got my copy half price with my sainburys points and told my husband I would try to cook one recipe from it each week to make it good value for money.

I started with the salmon fish cakes which were good and looked pretty much like the photo. I then decided to try the apple crumble cookies. Mine were a bit more rustic than Jamie’s because he used a food processor, which I refuse to posses in my kitchen, so my dried apples were hand chopped.

Cookies compared to the photo

They did actually really taste like apple crumble. Next time I would make sure there were no apple pieces on top as they burnt a bit. Over all though I was pretty pleased with them. I love the simplicity of this book and will continue to try to make one recipe a week.

    The cookies look amazing! I can imagine eating them hot out of the oven and dipping them in custard!

    They do look lovely. There’s nothing like home baking, as I remember from my pre-diabetic days!

    • I have actually remade them tweaking the recipe and liked them even better. I switched the apple for mixed dried fruit and left off the crumble topping. They are quick and easy to make and turned out really well. They will become one of things I will make when family visit.
