I made these mini biscuits late one evening as I fancied a little treat. They taste so good and are not too sweet. These biscuits are light to the bite and you could bake them without the Smartie for a healthier version. These would make a nice gift for someone who like biscuits and great for a family gathering. Super simple to make!!
Recipe: Mini Smartie Biscuits (makes 33)
50g caster sugar
170g self-raising flour
Extra flour for dusting
Preheat the oven to gas mark 6 and line 2 trays with baking paper.
Mix the butter and sugar together and gradually mix in the flour using your hands to form a dough.
Roll the dough with a rolling pin to a little thicker than a 1 pound coin and use a curved cutter to make the biscuit shape and place each one on a tray.
Continue until all the dough is used and bake in the oven for 20 minutes.
At the beginning of lockdown I brought a few baking supplies thinking I would be baking loads but it turns out I’ve been cooking a lot more meals. Anyway, I’ve had this box of Smarties in the cupboard for a couple of months and I thought it was finally time to use them. Here goes my Chunky Smartie Cookies….
Recipe: Chunky Smartie Cookies (makes 18)
100g caster sugar
100g soft dark brown sugar
300g plain flour
1/3 tsp bicarbonate soda
Large handful of Smarties
Preheat the oven to gas mark 5 and line 2 trays with baking paper.
Melt the butter in a pan or microwave and leave to cool slightly before adding to a large bowl. Then add both sugars.
Crack the egg and whisk in a separate bowl, before slowly pouring into the butter mixture.
Next add the flour and bicarbonate soda slowly making sure the mixture is well combined then add the Smarties.
Use a tablespoon to evenly place 6 portions onto the oven trays and bake in the oven for 15 minutes.
Leave to cool down completely on a wire rack before eating.
