Pimm's mint cookies
Skill level: Easy peasy

If you've got a drizzle of Pimms left in the bottle, use it up by making these simple Pimm's mint cookies. Infused with Pimms and fresh mint, these cookies are easy to make and delicious too. They should only take you 10 mins to rustle up and only 15 mins in the oven until golden brown. Serve on their own or make them an extra naughty treat by serving them with whipped cream or ice cream.
