Baking Love: M&Ms Christmas Cookies

We had a staff meeting with our volunteer work a few days ago and we wanted to spread some Christmas cheer so we made some cookies. I love making simple yet delicious cookies and these were gone in minutes! I made them according to the recipe on Laura's Bakery. It has to be one of my favorite baking blogs. We thought these cookies were so good that we might just bake them once more before it is Christmas ;)

M&Ms Christmas Cookies (makes about 20 - 30)
- 225 gr butter
- 150 gr white castor sugar
- 8 gr vanilla sugar
- 1 egg yolk
- 280 gr flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- pinch of salt
- 100 gr Christmas M&Ms

Beat the butter with both sugars until creamy. Add the egg yolk and mix through. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and knead until you have a dough. Lastly add the M&Ms to the dough. Wrap the dough in plastic cling and leave it in the fridge for 1 hour.

Pre heat the oven on 190 degrees. Line a baking tray with parchment paper. Make little balls from the dough and press them a little bit flatter. The cookies spread so don't lay them too close together. Press some more M&M's on top of the cookies. Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges turn golden.
