Rainbow Cookies

So, it is Sunday and I often dabble in a bit of baking on a Sunday afternoon. Today I made cookies with smarties in them I'm sure they wont do any favours for my waistline but with the temperatures going to -10 this weekend I think were allowed to be a little naughty.


  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
