A GLASGOW architectural assistant could be on her way to building a tasty sideline … by having her face appear on super­market shelves on cookies made to her recipe.

A firm has snapped up Kirsty Montgomery's recipe and plans to mass produce the biscuits, as well as put an illustration of her on every packaging.

Kirsty's double delight comes after the search for Britain's best biscuit recipe ended when the 27-year-old was crowned winner of the Border Biscuits Baking Bonanza.

Her home-made chocolate, peanut and fudge cookies impressed the judges, which included Great British Bake Off finalist James Morton and officials from Tesco.

The South Side champ banked £2000 and now her cookies are to be manufactured by Border Biscuits and sold in the UK's biggest supermarket chain from next month.

The box will also be decorated with a drawing of Kirsty by Japanese artist Yuko Inoue.

She said: "I am thrilled to win the Big Baking Bonanza and can't believe my recipe will go on sale and that my picture will be on the biscuits box."

Kirsty, who is a member of the Glasgow Baking Club and has her own baking blog, added: "I love baking and my recipe is a firm favourite with all my friends and family, so we will be buying a few packs."

James Morton said: "Kirsty's recipe is really outstanding and the ingredients blend extremely well together, with a delicious balance of textures."

Nicola Hainie, technical director at Lanark-based Border Biscuits, said: "Kirsty's recipe is a great addition to the Border range and offers something really different.

"The flavours and textures work well and complement our existing biscuits and it has been a pleasure to develop and create the recipe to go on sale."

Ashley Connolly, a buying manager for Tesco, said: "Kirsty's recipe is delicious and offers something really different to our customers.

"We are looking forward to it going on sale and hope our customers love it too."
