As you may well know I’ve been single a bloody long time! So when the opportunity arose to bake myself the perfect boyfriend, I couldn’t possibly turn it down. If you can’t find someone then bake your own so that when they annoy you, you can just bite their head off, literally!
Myself and my sister had great fun making our own boyfriends, and I would definitely invite the girls round so that we can make some together.
I also have a recipe for gluten free cookies which went down very well with my Mamma and the lovely folks at #LeedsMayMeet. The recipe is designed to make 12 – 16 cookies depending on how big you like to make them.
125g Caster Sugar
100g Brown Sugar
225g Gluten Free Self Raising Flour (substitute with Gluten Free Plain Flour, and 1 tsp of Gluten Free Baking Powder)
1 tsp Vanilla Essence/Extract
200g Chocolate Chips
Preheat your oven to 180 degrees, gas mark 4.
Cream your butter and sugars together, before adding your egg and vanilla essence. You will then need to sift in your flour and mix it together before adding your chocolate chips. Once your batter is ready, line a couple of baking trays with baking paper. I recommend that you place your cookies far apart from each other, once they are in the oven they will begin to spread, and if too close will get stuck together. Bake them for 10-12 minutes and then remove from the oven, letting them cool a little before you start eating them!
If you want to use a cookie cutter then you need a dough which isn’t quite as wet, so once you have your dough I recommend slowly adding a little flour and working it in until you get a dough which won’t stick to your cookie cutter.
I have been told by my mum that these do not taste as though they are gluten free, and she was very impressed with them, which is high praise!
You can purchase your own Bake your own Boyfriend Cookie Cutter* by Niion on Amazon or you may even want to purchase a Bake your own House Husband Cookie Cutter which could be great fun for someone who is getting married soon. I think these cookie cutters make the perfect little joke addition to any gift, I know that it’s something I do with my friends.
