Happy Flower Cookies

I’ve been trying out lots of ideas and recipes lately in preparation for Miss E’s birthday extravaganza party.
If you listened to Miss E you would think her birthday occurs throughout the year. She proudly tells everyone how many candles will be on her cake by counting off her fingers, and on a weekly basis asks for a rainbow cake for her birthday (damn that rainbow cake)!
However it is now only a matter of weeks away now (arrghh!!) so food ideas and plans are happening in earnest.

I’ve been back through old go-to recipes I have on hand, and gave a favourite choc-chip cookie recipe a sweet little makeover…


Happy Flower Cookies
60g butter
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon vanilla
1 small egg – beaten (I used NoEgg)
1 & 1/4 cups of SR flour
Mini M&M’S – I used and ate about half a pack

  • PREHEAT oven to 180 degrees (celcius).
  • LINE a biscuit tray with baking paper.
  • CREAM butter and sugar, add the vanilla.

  • GRADUALLY add egg/replacer, beating well between each addition.
  • POUR in sifted flour (with sous chef help). Mix well.

  • ROLL into balls and squish down into circles on the baking tray. I used a glass with a patterned bottom and squished the circle, so I had a guide to follow.

  • MAKE pretty flowers with the M&M’s.

  • BAKE for around 12 minutes depending on your oven.
  • EAT, share, enjoy!
