This recipe is for sugary, chewy cookies! Easily adaptable for gluten-free, these cookies can use whatever you have to hand! I used M&M’s and Reese’s Pieces.
130g plain flour (To make GF – use gluten free plain flour and 1/4 tsp xanthan gum)
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
85g melted cooled butter
130g soft brown sugar
50g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract/paste
150g M&M’s or choc chips!
Cream the butter with the sugar until combined. Then add in the egg and vanilla.
Sift in the flour a quarter at a time and mix with a wooden spoon until well combined. Sift in the baking powder and mix.
Keep mixing – dough will be a bit crumbly at first, but will settle into a hard doughy mixture.
Stir in your M&M’s or choc chips (or both if you’re feeling indulgent!)
Tear off mixture and roll into about 10 evenly-sized cookie balls and place on baking tray on baking parchment. Spaced these out and flatten slightly!
Bake on 200oC for about 12-15 mins or until cookies brown slightly at edges.
