I'm guessing that you are in Canada where Smarties are a chocolate candy similar to m&m's and are very different from US Smarties.
Great cookies and so simple. Kids loved them. My only recommendation is to double the recipe, as wil1 it only makes about 18 -20 cookies....
I love these, my mum makes them at X-Mas time and fight over them. Now I am getting my partner to make them, but they are the best and worth a try.
Good quick easy recipe. The only suggestion l have to make is that there is too many smarties! l would recommend only using 1/2 a cup instead of a whole cup... that would be plenty.
