This recipe is so basic, and so freaking yum. When Kalegh and I first started dating I went through a phase of experimental baking, I figured it would keep her coming back, 4 years and some disasters later my Dolly Delights are the one recipe she still asks for. As a result of the success at home I started baking them to take to parties and no matter the crowd they’d always be gone within an hour of them being plated up. I sh*t you not I’ve found these things wrapped in napkins and stashed by the front door and in handbags ready to take home after drunk guests demanded they get the last one. Despite their somewhat girly ingredients, they seem to go down especially well with guys… just saying.
So for my party later this week I’ll be baking up a couple batches fresh for my guests and I urge you to save this recipe and do the same.
DIY RECIPE: Dolly Delights Cookie
Ingredients (serves 25):
- 1 1/4 Cup Self Raising Flour
- 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
- 1 Medium Egg
- 125g Softened Unsalted Butter
- 1/2 Tea Spoon Salt
- Miniature Marshmallows and White Chocolate Chips (as many as like – more is better!)
1. Sift the flour into a chilled mixing bowl, add the sugar, egg, salt and softened butter and mix into a dough. Don’t bother trying to mix it with a spoon, get your hands in there and be rough with it.
2. Add as many Marshmallows and chocolate chips as you like but more is definitely better. It seems like you’ve added too many, you probably haven’t. The dough should be saturated with all the sugary goodness.
3. Cover the dough and throw it into the fridge for at least half an hour to chill, if you can leave it longer do – chilling the dough before it’s baked will make sure the cookies come out soft and chewy on the inside with a crunch to the outside, aaand, since we want them too look less like traditional cookies and more like tiny adorable scones, it will stop the dough from spreading too much while it bakes.
4. Preheat the oven to 165 degrees. Line a tray with baking paper and without being too precious, pinch off small pieces of the dough, around 2 inches in size, and place them on the tray.
Bake them for around 15 minutes then take them out and let them cool. It’s pretty much a fool proof recipe but you’ll know you’ve done it well when you try them for the first time.
Since this is a personal recipe and I love it so so much, please give it a try and tell me what you think? I can’t wait to hear from you all!
