These delicious biscuits are a fun take on the traditional custard cream biscuit we all grew up with. My Funfetti Custard Creams are as easy to make as they are to eat, and too nice to dunk in your tea!
The Great British Bake Off is back!!!! Yaaaay *does a happy dance* ! Of course this means that it also sees the return of the Great Bloggers Bake Off *does another happy dance*. Also, it sees the return of me baking lots and trying not to gain too much weight! Well, I have failed on that score already with my scrumptious Funfetti Custard Creams, as I have already eaten one and will probably devour another while I watch the show shortly.
The aromas of home baking are so distinctive – often these smells are wrapped up in memories of our own childhood. I know that the smell of a sponge cake baking in the oven takes me right back to baking with my own mum. It’s uninterrupted time, set aside, usually with just the two of you to work alongside each other and make something for everyone to share.
These shimmery Angel Fish Biscuits are made from a buttery, almost shortbread like biscuit and decorated with colourful icing and sweets.
So it is week 2 on the Great British Bake Off and thats means biscuit week. Now I may have mentioned before on my blog, that biscuits are my baking nemesis. I cannot bake successful biscuits to save my life. In fact I would go as far to say, that I were ever to make it on the GBBO on TV, I would be gone by the end of week 2 because biscuits would be my worse bake! Here is the story behind my Angel Fish Biscuits.

Thank you to my co-host Helen for hosting the last Bake of the Week. I am sorry that I did not post a new linky last week, I will blame it on the extreme heat we had, and my turning a year older for my lack of organisation and running out of time to post a recipe!
Anyway, lets take look back on the delicious bakes from before:
These Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies are so easy to make and only use 5 ingredients.
These cookies are so easy to make and do not use any added sugar as they are made from peanut butter and chocolate spread, mixed with flour and an egg. So easy! Also because I had been sent some Dairy Milk chocolate with Oreo and peanut butter in my Degustabox Uk recently,
I added a square of this to the centre of each cookie too. This meant that each cookie had a delicious gooey chocolately centre.
To enable me to bake my cookies with no fuss or mess, and to ensure that they could be removed from the baking tray easily without sticking to it, I used BACOFOIL NON STICK FOIL which is brilliant for allowing me to do just this. In fact it is the ‘Bacofoil Baco-Shake’ magic that allows food to slide off a baking tray with ease: from fishfingers to pizza, from chips to waffles, from cookies to brownies, BACOFOIL NON STICK FOIL is so handy to have in the kitchen, with its magic Bacofoil Baco-Shake ‘powers’.
It is infact the dull side of the foil which is NON STICK so this is the part that you need to put your food on.
I have a made a little video showing not only how easy these Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cookies are to make, but how much easier they are to bake using Bacofoil NON STICK FOIL:
