I bought a truckload of Smarties in duty free and after consuming many many boxes I still have a lot left. What was I to do with these little treats? I decided I would knock up a batch of cookies. I was never very good at making these cookies so now I have a good recipe I stick with it through thick and thin.
200g of butter or margarine (I just use the cheap vegetable spread you can get everywhere)
200g of white sugar
100g of brown sugar
300g flour (I used the one for noodles and dumplings)
1/2 a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
1/2 a teaspoon of salt
Cream together the sugar and butter until its light and fluffy. Add the egg and stir in the Smarties. Stir in the flour, baking soda and salt. Roll the mixture in to small balls and flatten the mixture with your hand. . If you not in the mood to eat 25 cookies at once (I’ve managed it before) you can roll the dough into balls then put them on a greased baking tray in the freezer. Then take them out and bake them anytime you fancy one . Bake the cookies at 200 Cfor about 5 – 10 minutes, my oven is very quick so I have to keep an eye on them as they can burn.
