This is the basic cookie dough recipe that I use
- 180g butter
- 11/4 cups brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon imitation vanilla essence
- 1 egg
- 3 cups plain flour
- 11/2 tsp baking powder
2. Divide mixture in half. Roll into a sausage shape about 3cm in diameter. Wrap each roll in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until firm.
3. Unwrap. Slice thinly using a sharp knife. Place on greased baking trays. Allow room for spreading. Bake at 180C for 10-15 minutes, or until golden. Cool on trays for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
