Prepare the cookies first. Mix together the dry ingredients.
In a mixing bowl with a hand mixer, add the butter and sugar. Beat the butter and sugar until completely smooth, creamy, and pale in color. Add the egg and vanilla and mix through. Then add the dry ingredients on low speed until combined
Divide the dough in half. Roll out each half ¼ inch thick on a non-stick mat or parchment paper. Cover and transfer to the fridge to chill for at least 2 hours.
Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line flat cookie sheets with parchment paper or non-stick baking mats.
Cut the dough into the crown cookie shapes with the cookie cutter. Re-roll any scraps and repeat. Transfer cut dough to the lined baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 12 minutes or until just golden around the edges, rotating the baking sheet halfway through. Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely
In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Add the cream and vanilla and beat together until thick and creamy and holds peaks. Then transfer to a piping bag fitted with the desired piping tip.
To decorate the cookies, match cookies in pairs. Place one cookie on a surface, top with dollops of piped cream. Top with the second cookie. Decorate with the cream filling and the M&M’S as Jewels. Refrigerate until ready to serve.

As an adult, she trained in restaurants before heading to culinary school, where she mastered the basics of French cooking, baking and pastry – her biggest passion today. She might have fine dining training, but Tara still has simple taste...she’d eat chicken nuggets every day if she could. When she’s not experimenting in the kitchen, you can find Tara try to work out, reading cookbooks and finding new hobbies besides food.
