Red Velvet Crinkles



IMG_4295A few months ago I discovered foodgawker, what a amazing site/app. I’m so additive it not funny! It a really great platform to discover new recipes.  One the first receipts that caught my eye was crinkle cookies. I have never heard or see anything like these on this side of the pond. So when I saw Red Velvet Crinkles by Bake Happy, I new I had a winner. This are fudge-like, chewy cookies and really do draw people in! I bakes these for a bake sale a while ago and so popular. I make few minor modification to the recipes as I did not vinegar (only malt vinegar) so I used lemon juice and  vanilla bean paste but extract is fine, whichever you prefer.IMG_4255

I'm a mild-mannered scientist by day and a food enthusiast by night. My idea for this blog was (with the assistance of my fantastic boyfriend, Fabian) to share some recipes of my own creation and other recipes that I have personally found to work out well and all going well, some posts on the great local food we have in Ireland.
