Around ten years ago Sheryl Machain and her sister decided to recreate and sell the type of hand made home made biscuits they grew up with.

That has now become Hunter Valley Cookies, now with her husband Fred and daughter Hayley. They bake 25 varieties seasonally but there are 12 favourites baked every week.

These are seriously good cookies as well. Big, chunky, real ingredients and good solid flavours. It's what we all want in a cookie!

The Hunter Valley Cookies shop is also home of the Weird and Wacky Cookie Jar Museum, a private collection of over 60 old and rare cookie jars.

The Full Monty is one of the most popular biscuits made at Hunter Valley Cookies.

We tried a bag of these and it was very easy to see why they disappear so quickly every day. They were delicious!

Two thick but light biscuits encasing a rich sweet creamy filling - such a great combination and probably my favourite!

The Mochacino Creme is another really popular biscuit.

Its basically a darker version of The Full Monty - with a shot of coffee in each biscuit and chocolate and coconut in there as well.

These were Mlady's favourites - but anything with the word chocolate in it has a bit of a head start with her anyway!

We were lucky enough to try four varieties of Hunter Valley Cookies. We had The Full Monty, Mochacino Cream, Sticky Date and Ginger and last but not least Macadamia White Chocolate. They were all great cookies - big, full flavoured and so hard to stop at just one!

Hunter Valley Cookies are available in the Hunter Valley of course - but also much more widely as well. In fact 90% of their sales are from locations other than their shop - so the word is spreading about how good they are. These are seriously good cookies!

Sir and Mlady were given cookies to try by Hunter Valley Cookies. Special thanks to Hayley Machain for arranging our visit. Thanks to Sheryl and Hayley for chatting with us on our visit.
