No Egg Smartie Cookies

Baking (86)      Chocolate (86)      Cookie (36)      Smarties (1)     
A quick, easy recipe to whip up a batch of delicious, bright, colourful cookies at anytime. Whip up a batch of cookie dough in advance, roll the dough into a cylinder shape, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze to use later - slice of a few pieces and bake.

Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 15 minutes
Makes: 16 servings

250g of self raising flour
125g of butter
125g of caster sugar
40g of smarties
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees C. Lightly grease or line a baking tray.

Place the butter and caster sugar into a mixing bowl and use a spoon to cream these together until well combined.

Add the vanilla essence and stir through.

Add the self raising flour and use a spoon to mix until completely combined.

Use your hands to form the cookie dough crumbs into a ball of dough. If the dough feels dry and overly crumbly at first, never fear - squeeze the dough in your hands or press it together with your fingers, the heat from your hands will melt the butter further and help the dough hold its shape.

Once the cookie dough is prepared, use your hands to squash it and spread it out a little.

Pour the smarties onto the slightly flattened dough, then use your hands to gently fold the dough over the smarties. Fold the dough in half, gently press down to flatten slightly, then fold in half again and flatten. Continue until the smarties are all embedded within the cookie dough.

Take 1-2 teaspoons worth of smartie dough and roll each into a ball. Place these cookie balls onto the baking tray, then use your hand to lightly flatten each out slightly. These cookies usually only spread a small amount, so the shape which they enter the oven is fairly close to the shape they finish as. Add an extra smartie or 2 on top of each cookie.

Bake for 10-20 minutes, until light golden brown.
