Baking Corner: Cookies

Hi Guys! 

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 

Step One:
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. 

Step Two:
Add the beaten eggs and vanilla essence to the creamed butter and sugar mixture and mix/fold in.

Step Three:
Shift the self raising flour into the mixture. Then using your hands make a dough with the ingredients. 

Step Four:
Separate the mixture into thirds. Put each third into a different bowl. 

Step Five: 
To each bowl add a different ingredient. In one bowl I had M&Ms, the other Skittles, and the other Cinnamon and chocolate chips. 

Step Six:
Fold the extra ingredients into the cookie dough.

Step Seven:
Grease the baking tray and cover with baking paper. 

Step Eight:
Making small little balls with the cookie dough. Mine had the diameter of around 5cm. 

Step Nine: 
I cooked mine separately. Also, when placing the cookies on the baking tray make sure they are spread out. 

Step Ten: 
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.

Step Eleven: 
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.
