This recipe is based off my cookie base, and is a winner with kid’s parties and afternoon tea treats. They look so fun and playful, and are very tasty! Good luck keeping these around, they go quick!
125 g butter
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 cups self-raising flour
A pinch of salt
Large chocolate buttons
Have the butter at room temperature and then stir in your sugar. Add the eggs one at a time and stir for a while. Now add the salt and flour. Stir until combined. It should be hard to stir with your spoon, and still pliable . Using a tablespoon to measure, section out portions and roll into balls using the palm of your hand. Place on a lined baking tray. Press the chocolate buttons a little bit into the middle of your balls.
Bake your cookies in a 180 degree Celsius oven for about 20 minutes. This recipe makes about 24 cookies. For a variation have a go with a little crushed almond on top!
