Christmas Cookies

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!
