Basic Cookie Dough


I love making homemade cookies. 
They're fun to make, and taste way better than the store bought cookies, or do they? 
Making your own homemade cookies needn't be as complicated as you may first think. 

I found this basic simple recipe for cookie dough.... 

250g butter, 140g sugar,1 egg yolk, vanilla extract, 300g plain flour - which can easily be adapted to suit your tastes. 


Make sure the dough is chilled and the baking sheets are cool before putting them in the oven. Otherwise the fat in the cookies will melt too soon, resulting in flat cookies.
