Smarties cookies


Don't forget to visit:The Cooks Journal and is now ready for posting! If you have a food blog - come and tell us all about it.

These were so quick to make.....from the Good Food 101 cakes and bakes

Smarties Cookies
4 oz 100g Butter
4 oz 100g muscovado sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup
6 oz 150g Self-raising flour
3oz 85g Smarties (just under 3 tubes)
Oven 180c Gas 4
Beat butter and sugar together, then add the syrup.

Work in the flour and then add the smarties. Divide into 14 balls.

Bake for 12 minutes until pale golden. I made these for the Ampthill Country Market stall and if I do them again I will hold back some Smarties and add them to the top as soon as they come out of the oven, so that they can be seen.

Owen said they were yummy!

I love that the recipe calls for 'just under 3 tubes' of Smarties - us cooks always get our little perks! What to do with the leftover smarties???
