Gluten Free Smarties Cookies

Updated: Apr 11, 2021


Nick was in the mood to bake some cookies this week so we came up with the idea of using the Halloween candies in a Smartie way: Gluten-free Smarties Cookies.


So for my friends that asked for the recipe, please save it.

The original recipe is inspired by Betty Crocker chocolate chip cookies.


Attention:

▫️Overnight Chocolate Chip Cookies-letting the dough age does make a difference!


▫️Letting the dough age for at least 24 hours enhances the flavors.


Recipe:

2 1/4 cups (250g) all purpose flour

(I've used PC Choice gluten-free flour)

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup (227g) unsalted butter

3/4 cup (150g) brown sugar

3/4 cup (150g) granulated (white) sugar

1 egg (room temperature)

1 teaspoons vanilla extract

4 small boxes of Smarties (45g per box)

Heat oven to 375°F (190°C). In a small bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt, set aside

In a large bowl, beat softened butter + sugars with a mixer for about 1 min until fluffy

Beat in egg and vanilla extract until smooth. Stir in flour mixture just until blended.

Stir in the Smarties. (you can add chocolate chips/ nuts/ oatmeal/ your choice)

Onto uncreased cookie sheets (I use Betty Crocker sheets) drop dough by rounded tablespoonful (2 inches apart - 5cm)

Bake 10-12 min until light brown (centers will be soft). Cool 2 min, remove from cooking sheet to cooling rack.

Cool completely about 30 min.


I would love to hear if you tried this recipe!
