Step 1: Step 1
Cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add the egg and and vanilla essence and mix well.

Step 3: Step 3
Roll the dough into balls (approx. 2 tablespoons per cookie). Press gently with your palms so they are slightly flattened, and press some extra marshmallows on top). Place on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper – be sure to space them out as they become quite large once baked!). Bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes. Allow to cool for a few minutes on the tray before transferring to a cooling rack and allow them to cool completely.
