I made this with my kids today. Good recipe but I reduced the baking time to 8 mins. The cookies burned if I left them until 10.

Great recipe. I used a soup spoon to measure them out and placed the smarties on top instead of mixed in to make them big and colourful (which made 13). I was quite generous with the smarties, used about 300g in a single batch (for those wondering how much to buy). I've uploaded some photos too.
