Preheat your oven to 180*C and line a baking sheet with baking parchment.
- 225g granulated sugar
- 175g brown sugar
- 225g butter
- 2 eggs, lighlty beaten
- 1Tablespoon vanilla extract
and beat until light and fluffy.
- 300g plain (cake) flour
- 5 ml bicarbonate of soda
Add to egg mix together with
- 125g rolled oats
- 1/2 cup of peanuts
Spoon 1/4 cup of mix onto your baking sheet at a time. I usually get four cookies to one large sheet. Make sure you leave plenty of space for them to spread out.
Poke your smarties (or chocolate m&m’s ) into the top of the cookie, and bake for 8-10 minutes (or until lightly browned).
The cookies will still be soft and you need to let them harden for a few minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool. Try and wait until they are cooled completely to enjoy them at their best.
