In many recipes that we post, it involves Gookie Dough being baked. In order to get it top notch and perfect every time we've put together a step by step so you can enjoy baked cookies without the hassle of mixing all the ingredients.
Firstly, take your Gookie Dough out of the fridge and leave it on the side so it softens at room temperature. This allows it to warm up a little and it's a lot easier to work with.
Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius and line a baking tray with parchment paper (we used tin foil). This means the cookies won't stick and will be easier to transfer.
Take your Gookie Dough out of the tub and roll out either with the palm of your hand or with a rolling pin. Grab a cookie cutter and press down to make the shape. Pop on the tray and repeat with the rest of the dough (or however many cookies you want to make). Remember to space evenly on the tray so they have room to spread while baking.
Pop in the oven for 12-15 minutes, keeping a close eye on them. If you still want the dough slightly gooey then we advise less time but if you want a cookie with a crunch then leave it longer! Once removed in the oven, allow to cool on the tray or dig right in if you want super warm melty Gookies. Pour a glass of milk and get dunking. Perfection right there.

Step #5 (optional)
If you're feeling extra decorative then feel free to allow the cookies to cool and then begin icing. Either with buttercream (icing sugar and butter) or normal icing (icing sugar and water). Top with extra sprinkles, write your own name or simply demolish in one sitting. The world is your oyster.

Firstly, preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celcius (gas mark 4). Take your Gookie Dough out of the fridge and leave it on the side at room temperature for around half an hour to soften, this way it will be easier to work with. Cut two pieces of baking paper and line a shallow baking tray which is greased with butter. Press the Gookie Dough gently into the base of the baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown.
Once baked and the cookie base is out of the oven, turn the temperature up to 200 degrees Celsius. Heat the golden caster sugar at 200 degrees until the edges caramelise and then whisk into the stiff egg whites. Spread the meringue on top of the cookie base from the middle to the edges. Lightly press a piece of baking paper over the top of the meringue and then turn the oven back down to 180 degrees and bake for another 10 minutes. Then remove the baking paper and bake for another five. Leave to cool completely and then cut into pieces. *Recipe adapted from mummypages.co.uk via Quick & Easy Toddler Recipies by Annabel Karmel*

The spooky month of Halloween has arrived. Hello, October! It's officially Autumn, going on winter and although this can be depressing, it also means COMFORT FOOD! Think of it this way, the clocks will go back in a few weeks time which means you get an extra hour curled up in bed with your warm duvet and you don't have to worry about your beach body because you'll be wrapped up in a puffer jacket. Here's October comfort food which is in season especially for you!

It's clear that Halloween and pumpkins go hand in hand which leads to the fact that they're in season. If that doesn't give it away enough, then just think that every coffee and food is infused with 'pumpkin spice'. So, whether you're munching on pumpkin seeds or pumpkin pie, the orange colour is screaming autumn. Maybe pumpkin Gookie Dough would be a delightful treat!
It's cold and blustery outside and you come home to roasted parsnips either with a gorgeous Sunday roast or in a soup to warm you through. Parsnips are much sweeter compared to carrots and can even be a delight when crisped up like a french fry.

The superior potato that is one of your five a day and tastes so good. The sweet potato is autumn at it's finest and is gorgeous in casseroles.
I don't understand the hatred behind cranberries, hear them out! Cranberry juice is delicious when mixed with lemonade so you won't have a super dry mouth. Although Christmas time is usually associated with this berry, October is the month where it's at its prime.

You either love them or you hate them. However, they are on the rise with restaurants turning them into little balls of heaven. Roasted with bacon, caramelised with garlic or even shaved into a salad make these strong tasted veggies into more of a variable dish.
Will you be digging into these veggies this month? Are you currently in a rush to get to the nearest Starbucks because you can't resist that pumpkin spiced latte? Keep updated for more Halloween inspired recipes.
Hello, Italy! Everyone loves Italian and in my opinion, it is one of the best cuisines out there. Pizza, pasta, Pana cotta and tiramisu, of course, it's delicious. So, this hump day, we're taking Gookie Dough and adding an Italian twist. This is cookie dough tiramisu.

Firstly, take the Gookie Dough out of the fridge and leave on the side for a couple of hours to soften. This way it will be easier to work with, pop it in a bowl and leave aside.
For the mascarpone cream
To the bowl of a mixer, add egg yolks and half of the granulated sugar and mix on high until it is pale yellow and thick. Add in the mascarpone and continue blending. Remove the mascarpone mixture from the mixer and add to a separate bowl and pop aside. Now, in a clean bowl, add egg whites to the mixer and beat until foamy. Slowly add in half of the remaining sugar and beat until stiff peaks form. Remove the meringue from the mixer and add to a separate bowl and set aside. Lastly, add whipping cream to a clean bowl. On high, mix in the remaining sugar until whipped cream with stiff peaks has formed. Fold whipped cream into mascarpone mixture then fold in the meringue and set the final cream mixture to the side.
Carefully dip both sides of the ladyfinger biscuits into coffee and place at the bottom of an 8x10 tray until the bottom is fully covered. now, spread a layer of the Gookie Dough on top of the ladyfingers. Then spread a layer of mascarpone cream on top of the cookie dough. Repeat layers again, starting with the ladyfingers and ending with the mascarpone cream on top. Top with chocolate. Cover and pop in the fridge for at least 5 hours and then serve. *Recipe adapted from grandbaby-cakes.com*
