It feels funny writing about these at the beginning of the week, in the morning. These delicious cookies are more about being tired late at night and suddenly realising that I need to take a plate somewhere for morning tea (a plate is a NZ term for taking a plate of baked goods to a gathering, it doesn't actually mean bring a "plate" as many an embarrassed newcomer to NZ discovers)

These are called forgotten Cookies and you can find the recipe here, basically you just beat up the mixture pop it into the oven and then turn the oven of leaving them in the oven overnight. It's the perfect recipe for a tired cook who doesn't want to stay up till the time goes off, or have to ice something once it's cool. It's also so great because they taste so good. The recipe calls for Almonds, but I have used pecans in the past of left the nuts out all together if there aren't any in the pantry.


  1. These look so good, and I love something that is this easy. Going to bed tired, and waking up with yumminess! Perfection

  2. These look so yummy I will have to try them. I have too many nuts going old in my pantry...

  3. these look delicious! will definitely try them soon... thanks!

  4. what a great idea and such pretty looking treats!
