M&M cookies


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Cream the sugar and butter until light and fluffy in an electric stand mixer. Then add the egg and stir until the mixture is runny.
  • Add 2½ cups flour, all at once, and briefly combine with the electric mixer, before kneading with your hands in the bowl and then on a lightly floured workbench.
  • Spray 2-3 large baking trays with oil and then line with baking paper.
  • Roll the dough into golf ball-sized balls and flatten onto the baking paper with your hand, leaving plenty of space between each one. Then carefully press 5 M&Ms into each cookie and cook in the oven for about 10-15 mins until golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside for 5 mins to cool and set, before transferring to a cake rack and cooling for another 5 mins.
