Rainy Day Baking – Reese’s Pieces Cookies

 There’s nothing better than freshly baked cookies on a rainy autumns day, well apart from large intakes or tea and intensive sleeping.  I felt like making cookies that I’d never baked before, rather than just using chocolate chips, or making plain pent butter cookies, I thought what better idea then to make Reese’s Pieces cookies? I thought i’d be a top blogger and post my very first recipe post, enjoy!

What you will need: 

– 125g of softened butter

– 100g Brown Sugar

– 125g Caster Sugar 

– 1 lightly beaten egg

– 225g Self raising flour

– Half teaspoon of salt

– Reese’s Pieces – Feel free to use as many or little as you like 

1) Preheat oven to gas mark 4 or 180 c (Depending on what kind of oven you have) 

2) Cream together both the brown and caster sugar with the softened butter until it forms a thick cream consistency (roughly the constancy of butter cream icing) 

3) Add the beaten egg to the sugar and butter mixture and combine 

4) Sift the flour and salt into the mixture and begin to fold it all together 

5) Once combining all the ingredients together, forming a dough, begin to knead the dough to make it smooth 

6) Roll the dough into separate balls, roughly the size of the palm of your hands, a little smaller if you wish 

7) Place the dough balls onto grease proof paper and place into the oven for 7-12 minutes – Depending on how soft you want your cookies to be 

– The mixture should make up to 12 cookies, but this will depend on how big you want them to be.
