Keran’s Fun Cookies

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 180°C and cut greaseproof paper to fit a big baking tray, and grease the paper.
  2. Using a food mixer, cream butter and sugars together until light and fluffy.
  3. Beat in egg and vanilla essence In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
  4. Fold flour into the creamed mixture. Stir in Smarties and bring the mixture together in a ball, using hands.
  5. Form little balls, using a heaped teaspoon of the mixture, then flatten into a biscuit shape. Try to ensure that the smarties are inside the dough, rather than on the outside of the biscuit.
  6. Place on baking tray about 5 cm apart. Bake for 10 to 13 minutes until edges are lightly browned and centres are still soft.
  7. Cool for one minute on the cookie sheet and then cool on wire racks.
