• Method


  1. Cream the butter and sugar together until pale.
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together until it comes to a soft dough.
  3. Roll into a sausage shape and wrap in cling film and chill in the fridge for an hour.
  4. After an hour, set your oven to 180c/160c fan.
  5. Cut around 12-15 slices of the cookies and lay them on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. Make sure you leave plenty of space as they do spread quite a bit.
  6. Bake until golden brown, which should take around 10-15 minutes. Turn the tray half way through your baking time for an even bake.
  7. Leave them to cool on a wire rack and enjoy with a nice cuppa. They will keep fresh in airtight box for a good week.
