Polka Dot Cookies

250g butter, softened
165g caster sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 egg yolk
335g plain flour, sifted
Smarties or M&M’s to decorate
1) Preheat oven to 180° (170° fan forced)
2) Place butter and sugar in a bowl and mix with electric mixer until pale & creamy
3) Add the vanilla and egg yolk and beat until well combined
4) Add the flour and mix until a smooth dough forms
5) Roll 1 tbsp of dough at a time into balls and place on prepared baking tray, allowing room to spread
6) Flatten slightly and press smarties/M&M’s into each cookie (Smarties lose their colour and the M&M's crack, so it is up to you which you use)
7) Bake for 10-15 minutes or until light golden (mine took 14 minutes in fan forced)
8) Cool on wire racks
9) Eat & Enjoy!
