Ingredients

  • (mugs refer to your average coffee mug)
  • 125g butter, softened
  • 1/2 mug sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 2/3 mugs self raising flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon

 

Instructions

Preheat the oven to 160°C/320°F/Gas Mark 4. Grease a flat baking tray.

Mix the butter and the 1/2 mug of sugar together and beat with a wooden spoon. Add the beaten egg and vanilla extract and beat well.

Mix in the flour and the nutmeg until the mixture is smooth.

Place the 2 tablespoons of sugar and the cinnamon on a plate and mix together.

Turn the cookie mixture out onto a surface and squash together. Make into a long sausage, handling as little as possible. Cut into 24. Take each piece and roll into a small ball, roll it in the sugar/cinnamon mix, squash slightly and place on the baking tray.

Bake for 12 minutes. The snickerdoodles should be slightly browned.
