“Rainbow Jumbles” Biscuits – Cookies: An updated version of the classic British biscuit, Jumbles are an easy one pan biscuit that needs no rolling, and is perfect for the children to bake with you.
Bacofoil® Non-Stick Baking Paper
Regular readers of Lavender and Lovage will know that I am an avid baker and I am never happier than when in the kitchen messing about with flour, butter and eggs! I make most of my own bread, especially sourdough which I have just got back into again, as well as pies, tarts, quiches, cakes, bakes, cookies and biscuits. And, one of the most important aspects of baking is what you have to hand by way of kitchen equipment, tools and baking aids, such as non-stick baking paper.
So, when Bacofoil® challenged me to test their Bacofoil® The Non-Stick Baking Paper, with its unique “dimpled” textured surface, I was keen to try it out, as other so called “non-stick baking papers” that always seems to stick, are the bane of my life. They asked me to create and bake something that was known for it’s “stickibility”, such as meringues, macarons , cookies and biscuits, so I decided to bake a notoriously sticky bake, Jumbles, which are classic British biscuits. My recipe today is an updated version on the ones I used to make with my mum when I was little, and have the added addition of some “Unicorn Chips” (multi-coloured chips) added to them for a bit of fun.
And, dear readers, it worked! The Jumbles simply tumbled off the paper after baking, compared to standard baking paper, and the paper was still clean, as was my baking tray underneath. Apparently the little dimples mean there is less surface area in contact with the bake so the food bakes evenly and food just slides off making cake mess and cookie disasters a thing of the past, and it’s Non-Stick on both sides too. I used the Non-Stick Baking Paper I had baked my biscuits on to line the biscuit tin, although I could have probably used it again to bake with, had I wanted too.
Today’s recipe for “Rainbow Jumbles” is one from my childhood – they are made in ONE saucepan for ease and are fabulous for the tea time table or the school or work lunch box. Suitable for children to make with correct supervision in the kitchen, just as I used to do with my mum, they would also make a lovely addition to any little girl’s birthday party. Before I share my recipe below, it was obvious to me after only one bake, that the unique benefits of this textured baking paper is that it also saves in washing up, as my baking tray was put away straight after baking these biscuits with not a scrap of grease on it.
My recipe for “Rainbow Jumbles” is shared below in a printable recipe card, and I hope you and your family love them as much as we all do. See you soon with more new recipes and some new travel news too, Karen

You’re right, many baking papers stick like mad! This looks like a good product.
These biscuits would be ideal for our Children in Need cake stall at work – or rather, the place I used to work but still bake for every year! All I need to do is find some of those unicorn chips……..

You can use any chips, such as chocolate chips Jean, and I know that these multi-coloured chips are easy to find now in most supermarkets! Karen

You can make these with your son too! Karen
I love oatmeal cookies and yours sound easy to make and tasty to eat. We don’t have Bacofoil® band at our stores here, but we do have non-stick baking paper and it’s amazing for baking cookies.

I love the sound of these Karen, and I like the rainbow effect too. They sound like the ideal thing to bake as they use just one pan! I haven’t seen the dimpled paper before either!
