Homemade Christmas gifts #2 – Smarties cookies

Christmas is synonym with cookies. And nothing beats home-baked cookies. These Smarties cookies make for a great sweet treat with a cup of coffee, and pair well with a glass of milk for Santa. They also make great gifts. And did I mention they are very easy to make.

You will need

  • 190ml butter
  • 325ml brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 5ml vanilla extract
  • 400-450ml flour
  • 5ml baking powder
  • 2ml salt
  • 250ml of Smarties

This is how

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.
  • Cream together the butter and sugar until light yellow.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract to the butter mixture and stir well.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder and salt into the mixture and stir. Now add the Smarties making sure they are well distributed throughout the dough.
  • Scoop small balls (teaspoon size) onto a greased baking sheet and bake for 8 to 10 minutes (Use your oven’s fan if it has one).
  • After removing from the oven let the cookies cool slightly before moving them to a cooling rack.
  • Pour yourself that cup of coffee and enjoy!
  • PS double the recipe while you are at it! You won’t be sorry =)
