Wishing you Peace

This is just a quick post to wish you all the best for these days. Hope you enjoy with your family, days full of love, laugther, big nice meals and lot of peace. I leave you with these cookies with M&M's and a touch of ginger.

M&M Ginger Cookies
260 g all purpose flour
1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
170 g unsalted butter at room temperature
130 g white sugar
140 g light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 egg yolk
1 1/2 teaspons pure vanilla extract
200 g M&M, Smarties or Lacasitos candies

Preheat the oven to 170º and line the baking tray with sheets.
Sift the flour, the baking soda, the ginger, cloves and the salt. Set aside. In the bowl of your mixer beat the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the egg and egg yolk, beating until well combined. Beat in the vanilla extract.
Gradually add the flour mixture and beat just until incorporated. 
Make balls using an ice cream scoop or two spoons and place them on the baking sheet. Gently flatten each ball of dough and cover them with the M&M's. Bake them for 14 minutes or until they are light golden brown. Remove from the oven and leave them 5 minutes on the tray before transfer them on a wire rack to cool.

So for all of you who celebrate Christmas, and even those who do not, I wish you all the best and Merry Xmas!

Lots of love
