I looked through my recipe books and couldn't seem to find a recipe I loved. So, I thought I would try to draft up my own recipe combining some of my favorites but changing it up a bit.
Here are the results. I even managed to sneak some whole wheat flour into these cookies. The addition of smarties makes for a yummy colorful cookie that the kids (and adults) would love.
Here is my recipe:
1/2 c butter or margarine
3/4 c packed light brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 c all-purpose flour
1/2 c whole wheat flour
1 c Smarties or other candies
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cream margarine and brown sugar well. Add egg and vanilla.
Slowly add flour and baking soda.
Stir in candy reserving a few to add to the tops of the cookies.
Drop by small scoop onto cookie sheet. Flatten slightly. Press a few candies into the top of cookies.
Bake approximately 12 - 14 minutes depending on your oven. Cool slightly on pan and transfer to racks to cool.
