Gobsmackers (aka Mayonnaise Cookies)

Recipe image




Crispy yet moist and tasty, bring these to the office just to see the expressions on their faces after you tell them what's in them, but don't tell until after they've tried them! These are our family's favourite cookie and so easy to make with the kids.

Preparation time: 

15 minutes


1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 cup mayonnaise
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt
1 teaspoon vanilla


Highly recommended to at least double this recipe, they don't last long.


Preheat oven to 175 Celsius. Combine the mayonnaise, vanilla and sugar. Add the flour, baking soda and salt, stirring until thoroughly mixed.

Drop teaspoonfuls of dough on a baking sheet. With a fork, press each cookie gently in cross directions and sprinkle with sugar.

Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the cookie edges just start to brown. Remove from sheet and allow to cool.


Passed via family from the late 80's

Almond flavour is a great idea, thanks! (I couldn't remember how much they made, I didn't want to over estimate, lol.)
I am soooo making these! They look yummy scrummy :)
