Portuguese Egg Tarts

My children were home early from school today and so I decided to bake something sweet for their teatime snacks.
I used ready made puff pastry and baked these portuguese style egg tarts. The caramelized custard makes a delightful difference from the chinese dim sum-style egg tarts.
These tarts were great when eaten freshly baked from the oven and with a cup of tea with milk.

Double Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate chip cookies are always a favourite.
These were baked with roasted hazel nuts.
My daughter loves the good old way of eating these cookies :
Dunk her cookie into a glass of fresh milk.

Savoury Cheese Biscuits with herbs

My friend gave me some Parmigiano- Reggiano and so I decided to make some cheese biscuits with them.
These cheese biscuits were spicy(with added paprika) and shaped free-form. I topped the biscuits with different herbs; like dried rosemary, thyme, basil and even black pepper.

These biscuits came free-form but I gave a twist to these savoury treats. I baked them in the muffin cups.
