  • 150 g butter room temperature
  • 100 g golden caster sugar
  • 30 g soft dark brown sugar
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 185 g self-raising flour

For the cinnamon coating:

  • 2 Tbsp caster sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat your oven to 180°C (Gas mark 4/350°F). Line two large baking trays with grease-proof or baking paper
  • Whisk the butter, sugars and egg yolk together in a large bowl until fluffy.
  • Add the vanilla extract and whisk until well combined.
  • Add the self-raising flour, whisk until just combined, then pull together with your hands to form a dough.
  • Split the cookie dough mixture into 24 roughly equal pieces, (each around one flat tablespoon in size), then roll each piece into a ball.
  • Mix together the caster sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  • Roll the cookie balls around in the cinnamon sugar and place on the baking tray, leaving plenty of space in between each on for spreading.
  • Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes, then remove from the oven and leave the cookies on the tray to cool.


Note: Once completely cool, cookies can be stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
