    The recipe for Enfriojoladas (or a sort of bean flavoured enchilada) is the result of me finding a bag of frozen black beans in my freezer, which were crying to be eaten.

    Spooky Blue Masa & Coffee Cookies

    These spooky cookies are so tasty. It's a recipe I adapted from the back of a packet of Masa-harina a few years ago. I used blue corn masa-harina, but you can make them with white one too. 

    These babies are gluten free and they don't taste like cardboard! (which is a huge achievement), they contain no nuts and they are really easy to make! You can eat them plain, or decorate them with your children as a nice afternoon project, eitherway they are delicious!

The Result: ice cream heaven!
