The amazing Smarties cookies are sure to become a family favorite. My advice is to make a double batch because they won’t last long! We always make enough of these cookies to share with our friends and have some in the freezer for a later date.

2 ½ cups of flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 cup butter
¾ cup sugar
¾ cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 cup smarties

Preheat oven to 375° F.  In a large bowl mix the flour, baking soda and salt, and set aside.  In another bowl or mixer, blend together the butter, sugar, brown sugar, and vanilla extract.  Slowly add in 1 egg at a time, while continuing to blend (stir).  Add the flour mixture into the blended items and mix until it forms a dough.  Gently fold in the smarties. Note: If you’d rather use chocolate chips instead of smarties, go ahead. Use a spoon or scoop to make cookie sized portions and place them on an ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake these amazing cookies for 7-9 minutes.
