The easiest, yummiest and most versatile Christmas cookie you could get.
Ingredients
  • 125g butter (cubed)
  • 100g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 200g flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 150g choc chips (white or brown)
  • 1 bag christmas red and green M&M's
  • OPTIONAL
  • *80g cranberries and 100g white choc chips
  • *100g chopped nuts and 100 white choc chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Add the butter and sugar to the TM bowl and cream together for 1 minute on speed 6.
  3. Scrape down the sides and repeat for a further 20 seconds until light and fluffy.
  4. Add the egg and vanilla and mix for 20 seconds on speed 6-7.
  5. Add the flour and baking powder and mix on speed 2-3 for 15 seconds.
  6. Scrape down the sides and add the choc chips.
  7. Mix for a final 10 seconds on speed 3 until everything is combined.
  8. Roll into tsp size balls and line up on a baking tray. Don't put them too close together as they will spread when baking.
  9. Flatten each one slightly with the heel of your hand or back of spoon and push in a few christmas coloured M&M's.
  10. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown around the edges. If you want them to be chewy, then take them out when they are still slightly undercooked.
  11. Enjoy.
Notes
Tip: If you're struggling to cream the butter and sugar together because it's sticking to the sides then add the butterfly.

Double the recipe and freeze them.
