Pudsey’s polka dot cookies – an easy cake sale bake.

Everyone loves a home made cake or biscuit. I know I bake all the time, but still if I see a stall selling home made baking I’m often first in the queue. I also try to contribute if I can. These quick and simple giant cookies are ideal for a bake sale. Today I pimped them with Smarties as I wanted to pay homage to Pudsey and support Children in Need. You could add in cocoa, chocolate chunks, dried fruit anything you like.



Polka dot cookies.

125g butter

150g soft brown sugar

1 egg

150g plain flour

1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda.

a minimum of 150g of mix ins (chocolate chunks, dried fruit etc)

Baked biscuits.

How to …. (makes about 12)

  • Preheat the oven to 190c.
  • Beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy and paleer.
  • Beat in the egg and again beat until light and fluffy.
  • Sift in the flour and bicarbonate of soda.
  • Fold in with a metal spoon. (If mixing in extras do so now)
  • Line a baking tray with parchment.
  • Place a dessert spoon of mixture onto the parchment. Space out well as the biscuits will expand.
  • As I was making polka dot cookies I placed the Smarties onto the cookie dough rather than stirring them in.
  • Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until well spread and golden.
  • Cool on the tray for five minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.
Bagged and ready to sell.
