So a couple of weeks in and I’m already hooked on the Great British Bake Off. I’m not sure who I want to win yet, but I’m definitely sure I don’t want to see anyone go!
Anyway, in the spirit of the bake off I figured the weekend was a good time to try my first bake in our new flat and seeing as we’re still missing quite a bit of kitchen stuff – rolling pin, icing bags etc... I decided to stick with something simple. These Smarties cookies are so simple and really good, it’s also pretty much impossible to just eat one at a time.
Here’s the recipe
100g light brown muscovado sugar
1 tablespoon golden syrup
150g self raising flour
Preheat oven to 180 degrees, cover two baking trays in baking paper.
Cream together butter and sugar.
Mix in the syrup, flour and smarties.
Divide into 14 balls and place well apart on baking trays.
Bake for about 12 minutes until golden brown.
