Easy Cookies

Published Tuesday, 29 December, 2009 by SleepyZebra

Super easy cookies that you can add anything into.



  • 1 pack butter
  • 1/2 the butter weight in sugar
  • 2 tsp milk
  • 2 cups flour (Use a mug)
  • Add any of these:
  • 1/2 cup choc chips (I chop a big bar of galaxy into mine)
  • 3 tsp mixed nuts
  • 1/2 cup dried fruit
  • 3 tsp cocoanut
  • 3 tsp hot chocolate powder *for double chocolate cookies*
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries
  • 1/3 cup breakfast oats
  • You get the picture - mix and match until you find a mix that you like.


1. Cream the sugar and butter together until creamy. If you're using hot choc powder, add it in now. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 or about 220*.

2. Add your flavouring (cherries, chocolate, whatever you want) and the milk.

3. Sieve in the flour and mix with a spoon. When you can't mix it any more with the spoon, make into a dough with your hands.

4. Make into balls and flatten with your palm. Put about 4 on a tray - these seem to spread varying amounts, so see how much yours spread on the first batch, then adjust amount of cookies on the sheet accordingly.

6. Halfway through cooking (7 mins) flatten with an egg slice/flat object).

7. Finish cooking and cool.

Optional Steps:

Dip half and half into melted chocolates to impress your girlfriend/boyfriend/friends.

You'll need either about 100g of chopped milk choc/white choc/dark choc.

Place in a glass or pyrex bowl over a saucepan of simmering water.

Mix slowly until melted, dip in your cookies and leave to cool on a wire rack.

If you want to be really fancy, dip each side in a different kind of chocolate.

Or: Dip cookie completely into chocolate and then drizzle a different colour over the top. Set aside to cool.
