Peach Cookies, an impressive dessert for every occasion. Soft cookies sandwiched together with an apricot jam and cookie crumble filling, then dipped into coloured milk, and coated in granulated sugar to resemble peaches, my favourite childhood treat. They are ridiculously easy to make, and ready in about 40 minutes or so. Grab some before they disappear! These are seriously nice cookies that kids will adore.

Ingredients
  • 3 eggs
  • 125 g sugar
  • 125 ml vegetable oil
  • 425 g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tbsp yellow food colouring
  • 1 tbsp red food colouring
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 cup granulated sugar (to sprinkle over)
  • 1 cup peach/apricot jam (or any filling of your choice)
  • mint leaves to decorate (optional)
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 Fahrenheit).

  2. To make the dough, use a hand mixer or the kitchen aid to mix the eggs and sugar until foamy and pale yellow.

  3. Add the oil, and mix well again.

  4. Add the vanilla extract, baking powder and flour, and mix to form a dough. Add a bit more flour if the dough is still sticky.

  5. Use your hands to shape small balls about the size of a walnut.

  6. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick perchament paper, then arrange the balls onto it.

  7. Bake for about 12-15 minutes until no longer soft, then remove from the oven and leave to cool a bit, before making a well in the middle of each cookie with a sharp knife.

  8. Mix the scooped cookie crumbs with the jam, then fill each cookie, and sandwich two together to make a peach cookie.

  9. In one cup of milk, add the yellow food colouring, and in the second the red one.

  10. Dip each cookie into each bowl of milk, then toss into the granulated sugar.

  11. Decorate with mint leaves, and leave to dry before serving.
