A child at church brought iced gem cookies to crèche and the kids started asking for them so we made some.
We used this recipe save that I replaced a third of the plain flour with finely ground wholemeal flour.
Sophia’s verdict was the cookie is yummy but not the gem part. Sandra spat it out once it touched her tongue. I Guess they are both Nor fans of super sweet things like meringue, which is fine since neither am I.
