- STEP 1
Preheat your oven to 190°C/fan 170°C/gas mark 5 and line a baking tray with greaseproof paper (line two trays if you would like smaller cookies).
- STEP 2
Put the butter and sugar into a bowl and beat until creamy.
- STEP 3
Beat in the vanilla extract and the egg.
- STEP 4
Add in the flour, bicarbonate of soda, cinnamon and the salt into the bowl and mix it in with a wooden spoon.
- STEP 5
Use a tablespoon (or a teaspoon for smaller cookies) to make scoops of the mixture, spacing them well apart on the baking trays. This mixture should make about 12 large cookies or 30 small cookies.
- STEP 6
Gently flatten the cookies and press a criss-cross/crosshatch pattern into them with the back of a fork.
- STEP 7
Bake them in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until light brown and slightly soft in the middle when pressed.
