Jubilee M&M cookies
One last Jubilee bake for the bank holiday weekend - I found some limited edition red, white and blue M&Ms in the supermarket and couldn't resist buying them. I'd seen M&M cookies before so went online to find a suitable recipe and threw them together in a matter of minutes!
I found the recipe I wanted to use on Joy of Baking, and halved the recipe but otherwise followed it quite closely. Essentially you cream the butter and sugar:
Add the egg, then the flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla.
Here are the limited edition M&Ms:
Shape the mixture into balls and flatten slightly on a baking sheet. Push some M&Ms into the top. Here they are after a few minutes in the oven. I realised when the cookies spread that there was space for more M&Ms so I added some more.
Fresh from the oven -a quick and simple recipe but a nice addition to the jubilee table.
