These sure are some delicious viennese shortbread cookies. You can keep these shortbread cookies simple or decorate them for a party with sprinkles. Either dark chocolate or white chocolate are lovely for this shortbread cookie and can be tailored as you like. Here i used blue and white stars with some green sprinkles. Other options could be white chocolate with blue sprinkles, perfect for a frozen party! Unfortunately I only had one left for a photo haha these were so delicious they didn't last long!

After 5-10 minutes place on wire racks to cool completely. Enjoy!
These M&M Cookies are so yummy! I had some red and green M&Ms which I needed to use up! before I ate them all that is! I was interested in making a choc chip cookie but why not make it with M&Ms instead? They give it a beautiful crunch inside the soft and chewy cookie.
250g plain flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
100g caster sugar
130g brown sugar
2 eggs (I used XL)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 190 DegC fan forced
Melt butter and let it cool. In the meantime get your other ingredients ready.
Line 2 pans with baking paper
In a bowl mix together plain flour and baking soda.
In the stand mixer bowl, add caster sugar, brown sugar, vanilla and cooled butter.
Beat on speed 2 for a couple of minutes until well combined.
Add egg and egg yolk to the mixer bowl and mix until combined.
Add flour mixture to the mixer bowl and continue mixing until combined.
Add M&Ms to the mixture and mix until combined.
Shape heaped tablespoons of the mixture into balls and place on the pans, allowing room for some spreading.
Bake for 9 minutes, until edges are light golden. Note cookies will continue to bake as they cool, so don't leave them in too long! I think it's nice to have a few that are softer and a few that are crispy .
