Yummy Xmas Cookie

Friday, 5 December 2014

This is one of my own recipes that I just threw together today. I am into cookie making at the moment and thought I'd try and make one with a xmas feel to it.

They are crisp and crunchy on the outside but lovely and chewy in the centre. You can add ginger or cinnamon as well to give them that extra kick.

For these you will need

Sugar - 100g
Mincemeat - 220g
1tsp - Baking Powder
1 Egg
1tsp Vanilla Essence
Self Raising Flour - 220g
Greased and Floured Baking Tray

Just put all of the ingredients together into a mxing bowl and mix together to form a dough. You need to be able to roll it into a ball without it sticking too much to your hands.
If it sticks just keep adding a drop of flour until it doesn't.

Now take a desert spoonful of the mixture and roll into a ball. Put the ball onto the baking tray and flatten with your hand. These do not spread out as they cook so you can have them quite close together.

Cook on gas Mark 5 for about 15mins or until they look a lovely golden colour. They will still feel slightly soft but will harden once cooled.

Allow to cool before removing from the tray.



  1. I have my own cookie recipe that is my fail safe, but it love the idea of adding ginger or cinnamon - would make it much more festive! :)


  2. Thanks for popping by Katie. I was out of those ingredients or I would have added one of them. Great for leaving one out xmas night instead of a mince pie!
