Blogmas 2014 - Day 10 - Cookies!

The prompt for today was 'Show us your cookies or share your favourite cookie recipes' 

For the past two weeks I keep saying that I need to bake some cookies.. It's one of those things though that I keep meaning to do but then something else comes up so the baking gets pushed down the list again. I actually love to bake. There was once a time where everyday I would be baking, cakes, cookies or cupcakes but then I went from being a Mum to one to a Mum to two. Meaning I have less time :)

I like to change my cookies up.. Sometimes I like just simple plain ones. Other times I like ginger bread, or I'll throw some chocolate chips in. I always decide what kind I'm going to make whilst I'm making them.. That and it depends what I have in my cupboards at the time!

Here's my go to recipe for simple plain cookies..

Ingredients - 

8oz Butter
4oz Caster Sugar
10oz Plain flour.

Method - 

Preheat the over then 170 degrees.

In a bowl cream the butter and then add the sugar and beat until the mixture is soft and fluffy.

Sift the flour into the mixture and mix until it forms a dough. Then using your head separate the dough into walnut size balls. Place these on a baking tray and then flatten with the back of a fork.

Pop them in the over and bake for roughly 15 minutes or until golden brown.

If you want to add any optional ingredients, (vanilla essence, chocolate chips etc) then do this when you are adding the flour.

It's as simple as that and they taste delicious! After writing this I think I am going to make an effort and bake some of these tonight! I always tend to make gingerbread cookies on Christmas eve. James loves to have one before he goes to bed and also leaves one for Santa!

Do you have a go to recipe for cookies?


  1. Ooh, lovely......we're going to be baking this afternoon and my biscuit recipe is decidedly similar to yours ;) We always leave a biscuit and a glass of milk out (Santa forgot to eat it one year - oops....)

  2. I think there is nothing better than a simple sugar cookie, I LOVE them :)

  3. Simple cookies can be the best. And if you have a good gingerbread please share! I haven't found one yet. ;)

    1. I have a great recipe for Gingerbread! I'll post it over the weekend for you :)


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! I read every single message that is left for me and try to respond to everyone :)
