I recently bought some smartie cookies from the supermarket, and they were quite disappointing. So we thought we would give them a try ourselves This is a quick, easy and delicious recipe
Makes 14 cookies
Method Preheat oven to 180c.
Cream butter and sugar in a bowl until combined.
Beat in the golden syrup and vanilla extract
Work in the flour, stir into the mixture in stages
Stir in smarties
Divide into 14 balls, either roll them with your hands, or use a spoon
Place them (spaced apart, they will spread) on baking sheets. Do not flatten.
Bake for 12 mins, until pale and golden on the edges. Cool on a wire rack.
The result - a lovely more ish cookie that is chewy on the inside with chocolate pieces, brilliant!
I have also made this changing the recipe by
Using white sugar instead of brown, and this works OK.
Using honey instead of golden syrup and that also works well
