Ingredients

  • 125g butter

  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 150g caster sugar

  • 1/4 tsp baking powder

  • 1/2 eggs, beat then just pour in half

  • 150g Smarties

  • 175g plain flour

Method

  1. Cream together the butter and the sugar.
  2. Beat in the egg and vanilla.
  3. Gradually beat in the dry ingredients.
  4. Stir in half of the smarties.
  5. Spoon walnut sized portions of the mix onto baking trays (leave room to expand) and push 2-3 smarties into each dollop.
  6. Bake in the oven on 180C for 12-15 minutes until pale golden (if you prefer chewy cookies cook a little less).
  7. Leave the cookies for about 2 minutes before removing from the trays to cool.

Handy Hint

If you don't fancy Smarties then chocolate chips, M&Ms or Malteasers work just as well.

    This is a really quick & easy recipe to make but you might want to double the quantaties as they don't hang around for long!
