Blogmas # 9 Christmas Cookies

I love making cookies at any time of year but around Christmas I tend to switch up the recipe a bit to make it more festive. The original recipe I used was the BBC Good Food Millie’s Cookies recipe but this has evolved over time so it is a bit different!

  • 250g Self Raising Flour
  • 175g Light Brown Sugar
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 100g Salted Butter
  • 1 Egg
  • A pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 3 tsp Ginger
  • 200g Chocolate Chips (or roughly chopped chocolate)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees.
  2. Soften the butter and combine with both types of sugar.
  3. Add in the egg and vanilla essence and combine with the sugar and butter mix.
  4. Sieve the flour into the bowl and add in the salt along with the cinnamon and ginger. Mix everything together.
  5. Add in the chocolate chips.
  6. Section into 12 and roll into balls.
  7. Put on the baking tray (I usually put 6 to a tray as they spread out quite a bit!) and place in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Do keep checking on them as depending on the oven it can vary quite a bit!
  8. Once they are out of the oven, they are really nice warm but are also great once cooled. They do keep in a tin for 4 or 5 days!
