- 225 g butter softened
- 110 g caster sugar
- 275 g plain flour
- 1 Packet Mini Jelly Beans
Pre heat the oven to Gas Mark 4 (350F/170C)
Grease/paper a baking sheet.
In a large bowl mix together all the ingredients you form a nice dough like texture.
Take some of the mixture and roll into a ball.
Place onto the baking sheet and gently press down, this is to stop it moving.
Bake in the center of the oven for approximately 10 minutes, until golden brown.
When your cookies are cooked, they will still be slightly soft. This is when you start placing the jelly beans into the cookies. You can use a small knife to make an opening if required.
When you have finished placing all the sweets onto the cookies, pop them onto a cooling rack and leave for 5-10 minutes.
I do not suggest putting the jelly beans into the mixture before baking as they will likely melt and make a lovely mess on your baking tray…..been there, done that!!
