Soft and Chewy Christmas Cookies

If you are spending time outdoors over the holiday season you need to try these soft and chewy Christmas cookies.

An easy to make recipe that features red and green candy-coated chocolates,  they will bring a little Christmas spirit into your snacks. Of course, you can add other Christmas colors also.

If baking these while camping do them in small batches as often camp ovens are exposed so more extreme weather conditions making baking a little more temperamental. Alternatively, that can also be made in a Dutch oven. 

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup sated butter

1/2 cup write sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 large egg

1 cup candy coated chocolate (e.g. smarties or m&m's)

Equipment

baking tray(s)

2 bowls

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Line the baking tray(s) with baking paper.

  2. In a bowl combine the flour, baking powder, and baking soda. Put aside until needed.

  3. In a large bowl beat the butter, white sugar, and brown sugar with a wooden spoon until light-colored and fluffy.

  4. Add the egg and vanilla and continue to beat until well combined.

  5. Add the flour and mix in until just combined then stir in one cup of the candy-coated sugar.

  6. Make balls out of about 1 tablespoon of dough and evenly spaced on the tray(s) making sure there is enough space for the cookie to spread. Push the ball down slightly with the palm of your hand then add some of the saved 1/2 cup candy-coated sugar on the top.

  7. Place the tray of cookies in the preheated oven and set a timer for 12 minutes. Remember that if cooking in an outdoor oven the elements can adjust the cooking time due to temperature fluctuations. 

  8. The Christmas cookies are done when the cookies are firm on the outer edges, yet still soft in the middle.

    Tip: If you prefer an English crunchy style Chrismas biscuits cook until the center is firm also.

  9. Remove the cookies from the baking tray(s) and place them on a cooling rack.
