What's my recipe book?


We know what it's like when you're browsing a site with as many recipes as ours. You find a brilliant recipe, want to make it again, but can't remember how you found it!

But we've solved the problem. Now, by clicking 'Save this recipe' or 'I cooked this' on any of our recipes, they'll be saved and grouped into your personal online recipe book. All you have to do is log in with your Facebook account to see them. When you click either of these buttons it will also tell your friends on Facebook what you've been cooking or saving so they too can give our quick and easy recipes a go (but you can turn this off at any time by visiting your 'My recipe book' page). Just click one of the buttons below or 'see my book' to get started. We hope you like it!

  • Makes: 15

  • Cooking time:

    plus cooling time

These are lovely squishy brownies - but with a plain cookie dough instead of chocolate. Enjoy with a cuppa


  • 125g (4oz) soft light brown sugar
  • 125g (4oz) butter, softened
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 125g (4oz) self-raising flour
  • 150g (5oz) white chocolate, roughly chopped
  • 100g (3½ oz) pecan nuts, roughly chopped

Add any combination of chocolate and nut you like: hazelnuts with milk chocolate chips is a good one.


  1. Heat the sugar and butter in a pan over a gentle heat, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Remove from the heat and leave to cool slightly.
  2. Stir in the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla extract. Fold in the flour and pour into a 26 x 16.5cm (10¼ in x 6½ in) oblong tin, lined with baking parchment. Sprinkle the chocolate and nuts over the top.
  3. Bake in the centre of the oven at 190°C (375°F, gas mark 5) for 25-30 mins, or until just firm to the touch in the centre. Leave to cool in tin for about 10 mins, then remove and leave on a wire rack to cool completely. Cut into 15 squares.
