It has taken me years to perfect cookies, whilst they are very simple and only require a few ingredients, everyone knows they need to be gooey on the inside and crunchy on the outside. This BBC Food recipe does exactly that.
First cream together 125g of butter with 100g of light brown sugar and 125g of caster sugar. Once combined, add an egg and 1 tsp of vanilla essence.
Then add 225g of self raising flour and a pinch of salt. The recipe suggests adding chocolate chips but smarties look and taste a lot better!
Then make walnut-sized balls and place them on a greased baking tray, make sure you leave enough room for them to expand to prevent them from making one giant cookie.
Place in the oven at 180°C for between 7-10 minutes depending on how gooey you want them to be in the middle.
These are definitely best eaten the minute they come out of the oven!
