Tip: Weigh out your 100 grams of butter and leave on the side at room temperature to soften for approx 30 minutes before making the cookies. If you forget to do this, then see alternative Butter softening tip.

Preheat your oven to one of the following:-
190°C Fan Assisted
200-210°C Regular Oven
Gas Mark 5
375F

Ingredients:
200 grams or 7oz Self Raising Flour
A pinch of salt
100 grams or 3.5 oz of Softened Butter
100 grams or 3.5 oz of Caster Sugar
1 Medium Egg
Approx 50 grams or 2 oz of White/Milk or Dark Choc Chips or cut up chunks of baking chocolate instead.

This makes approx 12-15 cookies depending on the size.

Method:

1. Measure out the self-raising flour and place in a mixing bowl.

6. Crack your egg into a small bowl, lightly beat it and then add to your crumb mix. Fold in using a spoon; the mix should now start binding together.

8. Now scoop out a small amount of dough and make a ball shape using your hands, this is then placed on a pre-greased baking sheet and squashed down with a fork.

9. Place about 6 balls onto the greased tray and bake in the oven for approx 15-18 mins or until golden brown. I baked mine for 15 minutes.

Tip: The middle of the biscuit may be slightly soft, but please note that biscuits continue to cook after they have been removed from the oven.

11. They are best eaten on the day they are made; however, you may also like to wrap them in a candy pop bag and give them as a gift.
