I know I don't normally post on a Friday, but I had to share these cookies with you.
They are heavenly.
- 225g of Self Raising Flour
-100g of Brown Sugar
-60g of Caster Sugar
- 125g of Unsalted Soft Butter
- A teaspoon of Vanilla Essence
- 1 Egg (lightly beaten)
- I table spoon of cinnamon for the Chocolate Chip Cookies
- A hand full of M&Ms
- A hand full of Skittles
- A hand full of Chocolate Chips
Add the butter and sugars to a big bowl. (I say big bowl because I tried in a small bowl and it was a disaster). Then with your hands cream the two ingredients together.
Add the beaten eggs and vanilla essence to the creamed butter and sugar mixture and mix/fold in.
Shift the self raising flour into the mixture. Then using your hands make a dough with the ingredients.
Separate the mixture into thirds. Put each third into a different bowl.
To each bowl add a different ingredient. In one bowl I had M&Ms, the other Skittles, and the other Cinnamon and chocolate chips.
Fold the extra ingredients into the cookie dough.
Grease the baking tray and cover with baking paper.
Making small little balls with the cookie dough. Mine had the diameter of around 5cm.
I cooked mine separately. Also, when placing the cookies on the baking tray make sure they are spread out.
Cook at 180 for around 8-15 minutes. When you take them out they should be golden around the outside. My first bake took around 15 minutes because the oven had to heat up, but the third time they only took about 8 minutes to cook.
One they are cooked leave them on the baking tray for a round 2-3 minutes so they hold their shape. Then put them onto a cooling rack and allow them to cool.
