Easy Smartie Biscuits

Serves 30

  • 250g butter, softened
    2/3 cup Bundaberg Caster sugar
    2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    2¾ cups plain flour
    1½ teaspoons baking powder
    ¼ cup milk
    Smarties, to decorate

1. Positon 2 oven racks in centre and upper oven. Preheat oven to 160oC. Line 2 baking trays with non-stick baking paper.
2. Place butter, caster sugar and vanilla in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and creamy. Sift flour and baking powder together. Add to creamed mixture, along with milk and stir until well combined.
3. Lightly coat hands in flour. Shape tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on prepared trays, 4cm apart. Flatten with your hand to 1cm thick. Lightly press 6 Smarties into each biscuit. Bake 15 -20 minutes, swapping trays halfway through cooking. Biscuits should be a light golden brown colour. Use an egg lifter to transfer biscuits to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
