Sticks and Stones


Yesterday was cool enough to bake.  It’s been so long. We’ve really missed it. Anyway we took advantage and baked Sticks and Stones Cookies from Rosie Daykins beautiful book, “Butter Baked Goods”.

We made half the recipe, but the full recipe says to sift 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour with 1 tsp baking soda and 1/2 tsp salt. Cream 3/4 cup butter with 3/4 cup of granulated sugar and 3/4 cup brown sugar. Add 2 eggs one at a time and mix well between additions. Add 1 tsp vanilla and mix. Add the flour mixture. The recipe actually says, “add the dry ingredients” so I added the M&Ms and pretzel sticks too. Ooops. Anyway, spoon the dough onto a prepared baking sheet.  You should have 24 blobs of cookie dough. You can now push 2 bags of M&Ms or Smarties and a bag of pretzel sticks broken in half, into the piles of cookie dough. Sticks and stones 🙂


We used peanut M&Ms which are rather large so we chopped them up.

Bake at 350F/180C for 15-17 minutes or the edges are golden brown. Transfer to a wire rack to cool, then eat, eat, eat! These are so good.



Happy Baking!
