About this recipe:These are, by far, my favourite peanut butter cookie. Sometimes I find some peanut butter cookies just aren't peanut buttery enough, but this cookie is loaded with flavour. Slightly chewy in the middle, and crisp on the outside. This cookie dough does not need chilling either – bonus!

Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a baking tray with baking parchment.
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, bicarb, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Place the butter, sugar, and brown sugar in a large bowl and cream them together with a hand mixer for approximately two minutes, until the mixture looks fluffy. Add the peanut butter and egg and mix until incorporated. Add in the dry ingredients and mix until the flour has almost disappeared. Add the Smarties® and stir them in. Form into tablespoon sized mounds and arrange on the prepared baking tray, allowing plenty of room for spread.
Bake for 15 minutes, until the edges are slightly brown and the mounds have flattened a bit. Remove from the oven and let the cookies cool, then enjoy!
