  • 250 grams plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Steps

  1. STEP 1
  2. In a large bowl, beat together the soft butter with the sugar using a wooden spoon.
  3. Beat the mixture until they are well combined, but there is no need for it to be light
  4. And fluffy.
  5. STEP 2
  6. Add the vanilla extract and egg to the butter mixture and beat again until all the
  7. Ingredients are smooth.
  8. STEP 3
  9. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients and pour them into the
  10. Wet mixture and fold using a spatula until a stiff dough forms.
  11. STEP 4
  12. Refrigerate the dough for at least 30 minutes. Preheat the oven to 170°C. Grease
  13. And line 2 large baking trays with baking paper or a silicon baking sheet.
  14. STEP 5
  15. Mix together the cinnamon and caster sugar. Use a teaspoon to roll balls of dough,
  16. Then roll the balls in the cinnamon sugar. Arrange on a baking tray.
  17. STEP 6
  18. Bake the cookies for 10 minutes, or until the mixture has spread out and browned
  19. Around the edges. Remove from the oven - they should look undercooked in the
