Emergency Cookies

emergency cookies cookies 2
Ladies and gentlemen: may I present to you my latest invention, the emergency cookie. So called due to their ability to rescue many dire situations, and the short space of time they can save you in! While late night essay writing recently I had a pretty intense craving for something sweet and tasty, and had no dairy free snacks laying around the house. I did however, have butter, flour, sugar, baking powder, two eggs, half a bag of marshmallow and some dark chocolate chips. And so, the emergency cookie was born. Here are some reasons why, if I may say so myself, they are just so wonderful:

But anyway, the main reason we're here. How you can have these cookies too:
You will need: 
Preheat the oven to 160oC
1) Cream together the butter and sugar, then the eggs and vanilla.
2) Add the flour and baking powder a bit at a time until all combined.
3) Stir in your filling.
4) Using two spoons to scoop and scrape, spoon a dessert spoon sized blob onto a greaseproof paper lined tray, leaving space between for them to expand. Or tinfoil if you're a disorganised student like me.
5) Bake for about 10 minutes until lightly golden brown.

And that really is it folks! It was a fairly experimental recipe so feel free to experiment, I'd love to see some pictures if you give it a go!
