Exams. That dreaded biannual period when procrastination levels peak. Some engage in cleaning, others binge watch television shows or Youtube videos or the World Cup. I choose to bake- what's better than a procrastination activity with a built in reward mechanism? Something i've been procrastibaking these past few weeks ( I've already made these twice in the span of two and a half weeks) are MnM cookies.
*125 gm softened butter
*60 gm castor sugar
*60 gm brown sugar
*1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
*1 pinch salt
*200 gm plain flour
*1/2 teaspoon baking powder
*100 gm MnMs (I used the crunchy kind)
*1/2 teaspoon salt
*1 song to dance around to when you are performing your mixing dance (I chose this song)
Beat the sugar and butter until its nice and creamy and then mix in the egg, salt and vanilla extract until smooth. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and perform the mixing dance ritual. Combine until it forms a dough.
Shape into a ball or sausage and wrap with cling wrap. Refrigerate for about two hours. After two hours, preheat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius. Either cut the dough sausage into round slices or roll into small balls and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
Bake for around 5- 10 minutes depending on how big or small they are. They should be golden but still soft when you take them out. Let them cool for at least 10 minutes before eating them.
Thankfully tomorrow is my last exam, after that I'll be a free bird for a month and a half-YAY! I have a few exciting things planned for these holidays, so I cannot wait to start doing them!
Till next time..
