When I went to dig the smarties out of the cupboard I spied this mix of goodies that I had bought the last time I went shopping and I thought . . . this would be fabulous in these cookies. With a mix of chocolate coated salted caramel bits, sultanas and tiny bits of dried apple . . . it was calling to me.
And so I decided to throw them in. I also threw in a couple handfuls of rice crispies cereal for crunch, and some milk chocolate chocolate chips . . .
They smelled really good when they were baking . . . but then again, tell me a homemade cookie that doesn't! It doesn't exist!
I confess I have created a monster. A total monster. So bad that I had three of them for breakfast this morning and I am eyeing them as I write this because they are calling out to me . . . every mouthful is buttery and sweet . . . crisp edged, chewy centred and stogged full of lovely bits of all the things I love. These are gorgeous!

Preheat the oven to 180*C/350*F/ gas mark 4. Line two large baking sheets with baking paper. Set aside.
Cream the butter together with both sugars and the vanilla until light and creamy. Whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Stir this into the creamed mixture with a wooden spoon. Stir in your favourite add ins. Drop by heaped TBS onto the prepared baking sheets, leaving space in between for spreading.
Bake for 12 to 13 minutes until golden brown around the edges and set. Let sit on the baking sheets for several minutes before scooping out onto wire racks to finish cooling. Store in an airtight container.
Be prepared to totally love these. Hmmm . . . they are what I would consider dangerous! Bon Appetit!
