Smarties Butterscotch Cookies



100g/3.5oz Butter
100g/3.5oz Sugar
175g/6oz Self Raising Flower
25g/1oz Porridge Oats OR dry Rice Crispies
2 tbsp Golden Syrup
Smarties to decorate
Optional: Pinch of cinnamon & Vanilla extract

[★] Heat oven to 160C/140C fan/gas 3. Line two Baking Trays with Paper and/or Butter.
[★] Beat together the Sugar, Butter & Golden Syrup until smooth, and add the Optional: ingredients. Sift in the Flour and mix together, before folding in the Oats/Crispies.
[★] Roll the sticky mixture into walnut-sized balls and place spaciously across the baking trays and flatten the tops slightly – these babies will grow outwards as they cook so be generous with space! I had enough for 11 cookies. Decorate each ball with Smarties.
[★] Bake for 25 mins until golden. Leave on the baking sheet for 1 min before removing to a wire rack to cool.
