The other day I headed to the shops in an effort to finish all of my Christmas shopping. The whole expedition went wonderfully. I was focused, determined and fuelled by coffee. Well maybe I wasn’t 100% focused, because this little unplanned, but severely cute item, jumped into my trolley.
I mean with all the festive cooking that goes on around here, how could I not have a cute Christmas mug and snack plate?
One little festive treat I whipped up to enjoy on my new plate is this super easy and tasty cookie.
The recipe is not new. Last year I posted about the Cookie Jars that I gave to friends and neighbours. You can read about them here.
We so enjoyed these, I have baked them several times throughout the year. But, now that the green and red m&ms are back, I had to make these cookies – Christmas style.
- 1 1/3 cup Plain Flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup oats
- 1 cup christmas m&ms
- 3/4 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup castor sugar
- 1/2 cup coconut
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup butter (room temp)
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 180 deg Celsius (160 deg celsius – fan forced)
- Place all of the dry ingredients in a bowl and combine
- Add egg, butter and vanilla and mix until the ingredients come together
- Roll heaped tablespoons into balls and place on a lined cookie tray
- Bake 10-12 minutes
**These measurements are Australia metric. 1 cup = 250 mls, 1 tsp = 5 mls
Now it is time to sit back and enjoy one of these while my boys sleep off an active morning at the park. Yum!
