For me cookies are a must for this time of year, they go perfect with a mug of hot chocolate on Christmas Eve. But I can’t wait that long to make and eat them so I make batches throughout the Christmas session. I have always wanted to make the perfect cookies and with this recipe they are perfect every time!
You can make these cookies a variety of ways, you could go simple by just adding chocolate buttons or for a festive touch you could add green and red smarties.
You will need…
125g butter, softened 100g light brown sugar
125g caster sugar 1 egg, lightly beaten
1 tsp vanilla extract 225g self-raising flour
100g of Buttons or Smarties
You could even use Terry’s Chocolate Orange – cut into small chunks!
What you have to do..
Cream the sugars, butter and egg together. Then add the vanilla. Add the flour and Buttons/Smarties then mix.
Split the dough into walnut sized pieces and place on a lined baking tray. Remember to leave space between the cookies, they will grow!
Bake for around 8 minutes at 180c for the perfect American cookie!
I really hope you enjoy this recipe as much my family do, I love eating them! What’s your favourite Thanksgiving or Christmas recipe? I would love to know!
