  • Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla. Beat till smooth. Add dry ingredients. Leave in fridge for at least 30 mins. If you can't bake them all at the same time, place the mixture back on the fridge while waiting. Allowing the dough to be warm makes them spread too much and they become crumbly and hard to remove from a tray.
  • Roll into balls.
  • Bake for no longer than 14 minutes on gas mark 2.
  • Alternatives: Before baking, roll in a mixture of 2tbsp granulated sugar and 1tsp cinnamon. OR Substitute some of the flour for unsweetened cocoa. OR Try adding mini rolos, or chocolate chunks
