This is a simple recipe that you can build on and make heaps of different cookies from - like lemon, orange or chocolate chip - see my tips below. You can also keep the dough in the fridge or freezer for extra quick cookies!
Poppy seed: Add 2 tablespoons of poppy seeds to the flour. Lemon or Orange: Add the finely grated zest of 1 lemon or 1 orange to the flour. Spice (e.g. cinnamon, mixed spice, ginger): Add 1 teaspoon of a ground spice of your choice to the flour.
Very easy and very good for when there's nothing in the pantry. Kids loved them. I always wanted to be a mum that could whip up something home-made without any notice. I just made a mixed spice, cinnamon and ginger version this time, but I can see that the recipe is very adaptable. - 12 Jun 2011
