Smartie Cookies


I am really not a fan of cooking when it comes to sweets such as cakes and biscuits, not really my forte, but my girls love cooking and baking so much so I am trying to make more of an effort to do some cooking with them.

My aim is to do some cooking at least once a week. Recently I came across a quick and easy recipe for smartie cookies which the kids all enjoyed making and eating.




  • 350g/12oz plain flour
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 250g/9oz butter softened
  • 300g/ 10oz caster sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 X 40g boxes Smarties



  1. Heat oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4.
  2. Sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda,baking powder and a pinch of salt into a mixing bowl, then set a side.
  3. Cream together the butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, then beat in the egg and vanilla.
  4. Gradually beat in the sifted dry ingredients to form a stiff dough.
  5. Roll the fough into 20 balls, then place on ungreased baking drays, spaced well apart.(WARNING: THE COOKIES WILL EXPAND LOTS, DO NOT PUT CLOSE TOGETHER!!! )
  6. Press several Smarties into each ball, flattening the ball slightly.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes until pale golden brown.
  8. Leave on trays 2 minutes and remove to cooling racks to cool completely.
  9. Will keep in an airtight tin for up to 5 days
