BLOGMAS DAY 28- Christmas Light Cookie Recipe

One of the most commonly baked goodies that I end up making back at University, are my super yummy cookies. It’s got lots of chocolate chips, smarties, and is still so gooey and soft in the middle. It’s definitely my favourite cookie recipe ever. So, it only seems right that I share it with you all! And, since it’s the Christmas season, I’ve adapted the name of these yummy treats to be called Christmas light cookies, as all of the multi-coloured sweets inside look just like that!



  • 155g plain flour
  • 110g unsalted butter
  • 110g light brown sugar
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 2 drops vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 pinches baking powder
  • 100g winter coloured Smarties
  • 100g chocolate chips




1. Preheat oven to 180oC, and line two baking trays with baking paper.

2. Mix together light brown sugar, caster sugar and butter.

3. Beat the egg, and then add into the sugar mixture.

4. Mix in vanilla extract.

5. Sieve in flour and baking powder and mix.

6. Add in Smarties and chocolate chips.

7. Roll out mixture into balls about the size of a walnut, and place onto the baking trays. (If the mixture is too sticky add more flour).

8. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until turning golden in colour (remembering that they will harden slightly as they cool, so make sure not to over cook). I would say for you to leave the cookies to cool, but I do love to eat one when it’s still warm, as they taste so delicious!


And there you are, the perfect cookie recipe that you NEED to bake! It’s a recipe I’ve baked many a time, and will continue. I also love how on the bottom of the cookie you can see all of the different colours, which is why it’s called my Christmas light cookies!
