The Little Book of Treats & Pecan Muscovado Cookies

Little Book of Treats cover IMG_4717 R

Guess what?? I have a recipe published in a very special book!

'The Little Book of Treats', which is being sold in all M&S Cafés from NOW until the 3rd October, is a luxury edition of fabulous sweet recipes being sold in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. It's only £4.00 and 100% of the proceeds go to charity.

M&S cafés are the official partner of Macmillan's World's Biggest Coffee Morning, and YOU can participate by popping along to you nearest M&S café on Friday 28th September. 50p will be donated from your coffee sale price to Macmillan Cancer Support, and they will also be making a contribution from the sale price of a range of treats, right up to Wednesday 3rd October.
And, of course, you can buy the book!

In the book you will find recipes from Stephen Fry, Amanda Holden, Fearne Cotton, Eric Lanlard, Kimberley Walsh, Janet Jackson, Sir Ian McKellen and.... ME!! There are loads of other contributors and the recipes include raspberry shortcake hearts, party time chocolate fridge cake, gingerbread cinnamon cupcakes, coconut semifreddo, crunchy topped banana cake and honeycomb & milk chocolate biscotti.

There are a few other bloggers who have great recipes in the book, pictured on the front cover is a recipe from a long time friend Karen, who writes Lavender and Lovage.

I have made several of the recipes already. These pecan muscovado cookies are from Joanna Lumley and they're absolutely gorgeous: soft, crumbly and full of pecan deliciousness - perfect with a cuppa!
