Rainbow Pride Cookies

As always the weekend has flown by and Monday morning is already looming. I had such a great weekend though, and got lots of cleaning and cooking down. Today's recipe is another idea that I spotted on Pinterest and something I thought I'd love to give a try.These cookies look incredible! When making them today Molly thought that they looked like play-doh. He was right, the colours are a bit mad, but such a great idea for kids birthday parties  or big kids parties. The cookie itself is a really nice, buttery chocolate chip cookie, with the perfect balance of chewy and crunchy. I used milk chocolate chips, but of course you could just as easily throw in some white or dark chocolate chips.

Rainbow Pride Cookies

100g sugar 
180g butter (softened)
130g chocolate chips
170g self raising flour
80ml condensed milk
Pinch of salt
Selection of gel food colourings

1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Line 2 large baking trays with baking parchment and set aside.
2. In a free-standing mixer, mix together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Next add the 
    condensed milk and incorporate into the mixture.
3. Mix in the flour until a dough is formed. Finally stir in the chocolate chips.
4. Divide the mixture into four separate bowls. Using a hand held mixer, add the food colouring 
    and mix until the colour is even and well distributed.
5. Place teaspoon sized balls onto a baking tray, and press down and flatten gently. Bake for  
    10-15 minutes or until slightly golden.  

E-D's Notes
- To make the multi-coloured cookies pictured below, simply take a small amount of each of the 
   coloured doughs and form one ball. Place on a baking tray and flatten slightly. 
- These cookies will keep well for 2-3 days if kept in an airtight container or biscuit tin.
