Smartie Cookies

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Helen1

I cut this out of the TV Guide in 1984, it was a feature on celebritie's favourite recipes and this was Howie Mandel's contribution. Sometimes I use red and green smarties for Christmas or pastel ones for Easter. Reeces Pieces are good in these too.

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.
