Smarties Cookies

These are the cookie of my childhood. They are the only cookie I really remember loving and the ones that got baked and requested the most. Smarties are like the Canadian version (but SO much better!) of M&Ms — candy coated milk chocolate. Of course if you’re American, you can substitute Smarties for M&Ms.

(P.S. I know in the States “Smarties” are a sweet chalky candy, these are definitely NOT the same thing! In Canada we call those “Smarties” Rockets. Confused yet? Good!)
Smarties Cookies
You will need:

  • 1 cup margarine (I prefer margarine, call me crazy; you can certainly use butter)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • 1½ cups (~3 packages 45 g) Smarties

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Cream margarine, brown and white sugars until fluffy. Add in vanilla and eggs and beat until very well incorporated. Stir in the baking soda, salt and flour until just combined, and stir in the Smarties lastly. You can do all the above in your stand mixer, except adding the Smarties. They will break if you stir them in with your mixer, do this by hand.

Smarties Cookies

The kids love these, we love these, they are easy to make and by far the most often made cookie in this house. Make sure to use holiday coloured Smarties to make festive cookies. This is the same recipe used for my Christmas Cookies in a Jar!

Happy baking!
