DIFFICULTY
Easy

Ingredients

For the cookies

  • 100g unsalted butter
  • 125g light brown sugar
  • 150g caster sugar
  • 1 egg + 1 egg yolk
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 325g plain flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 121g bag Maltesers

Method

1. Place the brown sugar and butter together in a bowl.

2.  Place the bowl in the microwave for 30-40 seconds, to melt them together. (This will stop there being lumps of sugar in your cookies!)

3.  Add the caster sugar into the melted butter and brown sugar, and mix thoroughly.

4.  Beat in the egg and the extra yolk.

5.  Add in the vanilla extract and mix.

6.  Sieve in the flour and bicarb, then mix again to form a dough.

7.  Place the Maltesers in a sandwich bag and give them a good whacking with a rolling pin, then empty the crushed Maltesers into your bowl of cookie dough and make sure the pieces are thoroughly dispersed throughout the mixture. (You will need to use your hands!)

8.  Put the bowl of cookie dough in the fridge to chill for 20 minutes.

9.  In the meantime, preheat your oven to 180 degrees Centigrade (Gas Mark 4) and line two baking trays with baking parchment.

10.  When the 20 minutes is up, remove the cookie dough from the fridge, roll into 18 or 20 even balls (the dough may be a little crumbly, but the warmth of your hands should bring it together), flatten each slightly and place them evenly spaced on the baking trays.

11.  Pop the trays in the oven for 11-13 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown.

12.  Once removed from the oven, immediately transfer the cookies to a wire rack and allow to cool completely.
