  • 250g butter softened

  • 1 egg yolk

  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

  • 140g caster sugar

  • 300g plain flour


  1. Mix the butter and sugar in a large bowl with a wooden spoon, then add the egg yolk and vanilla and briefly beat to combine. Sift over the flour and stir until the mixture is well combined - you might need to get your hands in at the end to give everything a really good mix and press the dough together.
  2. Scoop the mixture into 12 large balls onto a non-stick baking sheet. Space well apart, as they will spread. Flatten slightly, bake for 12-15 minutes.
