My Favourite Cookies

Today I decided to make one of my all time favourite recipes, m&m cookies! They are really delicious, easy to make and always go down a treat!

Ingredients: 

250g/9oz softened butter
50g/2oz caster sugar
100g/3.5oz light muscovado sugar
300g/10oz self raising flour
2 tbsp milk
1 bag of m&ms


Method:

1. Preheat the oven to 180c/Gas mark 4. 

2. Line 3 baking sheets with non stick baking paper (or bake in batches). 

3. In a bowl, beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. 

4. Stir on the flour and milk, mix well, then stir in the M&Ms.

5. Divide the mixture into 18 equal portions. 

6. Roughly shape each portion into a ball. Put on the baking sheets well apart to allow for spreading. Lightly flatten each biscuit with your fingertips, keeping the mixture quite rough-looking.

7. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the cookies are pale golden around the edge, but still feel soft in the centre. 

8. Cool on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and allow to cool a little more before eating.


 And there you have it, like I say these are so easy and simple to make I really recommend! What's your favourite cookie recipe?

    1. You could but I would recommend that you put the sugar in a food processor for a quick blitz so that it's not so grainy! :)
