Ok, so obviously, this went a bit wrong.
A Smartie Cookie Pie. With no Smarties.
I really wish that I had taken a picture before I put this in the oven. It was beautiful - Smarties around the rim, Smarties in the middle, spelling out the word PIE.
Halfway during baking, I sneaked a look and *kaboom*, it was bubbling over like a big cookie monster. I had put the mixture in a tin a bit too small and the Smarties had sunk inwards, lost forever more.
Following a bit of umming and ahhing, I quickly transferred it into a larger tin. Ka-splat. I lost the beautiful rim of the pie as it sank in a little more. Oh dear, it's going to come out like a giant mess, I thought.
Not wanting to admit defeat just yet, I returned it to the oven. I was panicking because I didn't have an emergency back-up Pie in mind to make - I haven't missed a Friday Pie-Day since I started it about a year ago!
It actually did come out like a giant cookie pie, as planned, but sadly, as you might have guessed, the Smarties were well hidden.
But fear not, my pie-loving friends, I found a way to make them a secret no more...
Um yeah, I just stuck extra Smarties on top.
And P.S. it tasted GOOD!
