Cookies as a concept are not that bad for you, its just the copious amounts of unnecessary sugar manufactures and recipes call for that has given them such a bad press. Try this really simple, loved by young and old recipe and use it as a basis for loads of excellent cookie combinations such as apricot and cinnamon, cranberry or orange and hazelnut.
  • Basic cookie dough ingredients:
  • 100g/31/2oz organic butter, at room temperature
