Whether you leave this cookies out for Santa, give as a homemade gift to loved ones or bake them all for yourself, these biscuits are guaranteed to please!


128g Unsalted butter
128g Brown sugar
128g White sugar
2 Eggs
2 1/2 teaspoons Vanilla extract
320g All purpose flour
1 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 teaspoon Baking powder
250g Red & green chocolates


Cream together the butter and sugars in a mixer for 3 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla, making sure to scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl. Add the flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder and mix on low until everything is incorporated. Fold in half of the red and green chocolates.

Chill the dough for at least 2 hours. Preheat your oven to 180C, scoop out two tablespoons of dough and roll into a ball.

Place 12 of the cookie dough balls on a parchment lined baking sheet. Add a few red and green chocolates on top of each cookie, making sure they stick into the dough.

For cookies that are soft in the middle bake for 10-12 minutes until just slightly golden around the edges. If you want them crisp, bake for 12-14 minutes. Remove from the oven and let rest for 5 minutes before transferring them off the baking sheet and onto a cooling rack.
