These Subway inspired rainbow cookies are to die for, and are just like the real thing in my opinion! Don’t believe me? Don't worry, I wouldn’t either. Luckily this recipe is super easy to make so give it a try and let me know the verdict!
125g unsalted butter.
100g tightly packed light brown sugar.
80g granulated sugar.
280g plain flour.
1 and 1/2 tsp baking powder.
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda.
A pinch of salt.
1 medium egg.
2 tsp of vanilla extract.
100g smarties or any colourful chocolate.
50g milk chocolate.
50g white chocolate.
Cream together the butter and both sugars until smooth and well combined.
Add in the egg and vanilla extract.
In a separate bowl whisk together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, baking powder and salt.
Gradually add the dry ingredients into the wet, stirring as you pour.
Add in the smarties, milk chocolate and white chocolate and mix until evenly distributed. If you like leave some chocolate aside to decorate the top of the cookies later.
Using a large ice cream scoop evenly divide the cookie dough and roll it into smooth balls by hand.
Place the cookie dough balls in the freezer to chill for approximately 15 minutes. This helps them hold their shape and stops them spreading too much during the cooking process.
In the meantime, preheat your oven to 170 degrees fan.
After 15 minutes, take the cookie dough out of the freezer and place on a large tray. I typically do 5 per tray.
Gently push down the balls of cookie dough to ensure they spread a reasonable amount.
Use the left over chocolate to decorate the top of the cookies and then put them in the oven.
Bake the cookies for approximately 10-14 minutes, depending on how soft you like your cookies. I typically do 10-12 minutes.
Once cooked, take the cookies out of the oven and allow them to cool down on the side. They will continue to cook as they cool.
