No Frills Cookies

225 g butter, at room temperature
110 g caster sugar
275 g plain flour
1tsp Vanilla essence
This is a mega easy basic cookie recipe that takes no time at all I managed to get them done in 30 minutes before Thomas got bored!
Preheat the oven to 170C/gas 3.

Cream the butter in a large bowl until soft and creamy. Add the sugar and beat until the mixture is pale and fluffy now add the vanilla essence

Sift in the flour bring the mixture together to form a firm dough. I actually found it easier to do this bit by hand.

Using your hands, roll the dough into walnut-sized balls and place them slightly apart on a baking tray (no need to grease or line). Flatten them slightly again I just used my fingers bake in the oven for 13–15 minutes, or until they are light golden brown and slightly firm on top.

Carefully transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool.
You could adapt this recipe in many different ways you could add chocolate chips, I had a go at adding honeycomb pieces too if you wondering what they funny splodges are in the photo.
