Forum home Receptions


:\) Hi everyone.

I am thinking of making cookies for favours and putting them into a little box. Does anyone know any good recipes that would make good cookies or any thing along those lines. The last batch i made were rock hard. Although that might just be my cooking!


  • I love the idea of cookie favours, I saw a thread on here a while ago with some nice ideas, and a company called Peggy Porschen do gorgeous ones, hadn't thought about making them myself, it would be a nice personal touch, sorry havnt got a recepie, but wuld also be interested in any that anyone has. Got loads of time to practice.

    have you tried a deliah recipe - hers are usually pretty good.

    We are thinking of this as an idea too - but I'm worried about my decorating skills!!!

    good luck x

    in this months edition of yyw there is a section on making favour cookies and icing them with the receipe in it.
  • Hello Ladies,

    I am currently in the middle of setting my own business up with my sister making cookie wedding favours, had lots of positive feedback so far! All shapes and colours, wedding dresses, suit jackets, hearts, fairies and stars to name but a few. They come in a cellophane bag with ribbon to match your theme! If you would like me to send you a sample let me know!!

    Hiya Im making cookies and have made some trial batches with this recipe, thought almond cookies were quite a nice idea too as its a slight link to traditional sugar almonds!!!!

    They are dead easy to make and yummy, have tried them with vanilla essence too...

    Almond biscuits

    175g (6oz) Self raising flour

    Pinch of salt

    75g (3oz) caster sugar

    50g (2oz) ground almonds

    150g (5oz)margarine

    Few drops almond essence or vanilla essence

    1. Heat oven to 180 and grease 2 baking trays

    2. Mix together dry ingredients and rub in the margarine

    3. Add essence and mix well, and bring together using your hands

    4. Roll out thinly and cut into shapes. (Ive got some heart cutters)

    5. Place on baking tray (they get bigger!) and bake for approx. 15 mins

    Im getting celllophane bags from ebay and tying them with a gold ribbon...let me know how you get on xx

    Have you seen small heart cutters anywhere. Me and my fiancee (cat83) have been looking for small enough ones so the cookies can fit in the favour boxes we have but have not seen any anywhere.
  • Try Hobbycraft. I got some heart cutters to make icing decorations for a practice run at decorating my own cake. They are about £4.50 but they are a nice shape and very easy to cut with. You get three sizes but they are all small and would all fit in favour boxes.
