These cookies are one of our favorites around here. They are simple and quick to make and they make a large batch which is great for freezing. You can use chocolate chips instead of smarties but its always fun to add some color to the cookies so I keep a stach of candies hidden just for these cookies. I have done them with crushed up mini eggs, mini M&M's, chocolate chunks and of course the Smarties.
1 cup margarine
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups oat meal
3/4 cups coconut
2 boxes of smarties
Beat Margarine, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Combine flour, baking powder and soda and add to margarine mixture. Add last 3 ingredients and mix. (I did it all in the kitchen aid)
Drop by table spoon and bake for 8-10 minutes in 350 oven.
Makes 3-4 dozen
Yummy cookie ready to be eaten!!!
These two joking around while enjoying their afternoon snack of warm cookies. I am playing around with the new camera I got for Mothers day and I love how I got this action shot of the two of them.
