So last week I was, even if I say so myself, one of the best people to work with. Why you may ask? Because I baked sugar cookies the looked like this:
Here's what you need:
- 150g butter
- 75g caster sugar
- 225g plain flour
- 3 tubes of Smarties
Preheat your oven to 170C (gas mark 4) and then mix together the flour and sugar in a large bowl, once that's all nice and even, add the butter (I just use a dairy free version and it works just fine) and Smarties, get your hands in the bowl and rub the butter in until it's all smooth and looks like dough. I've found that wrapping the dough in clingfilm and putting it in the fridge for 15 minutes helps keep it together when you roll it out.
So after leaving the dough in the fridge, you need to roll the dough out on a floured surface until it's around 1cm thick and get cutting! They then just need to be baked in an oven for around 15-20 minutes, or until golden brown.
Then this is where it all gets a bit camp, I bought edible glitter a few weeks ago and I just covered the cookies in this wonderful stuff:
Pink and silver sugar cookies, perfection.
