This year, as part of my Christmas baking, apart from the traditional Christmas fruit/plum cake, my little girl and I decided to try our hand at cookies. This is my first attempt to bake cookies.
While it is actually pretty easy, the trick is getting them out of the oven at the right time. If they get over baked even for a minute, the cookies turn out hard and brittle, not chewy and crumbly as they should be. How do I know this? Well...my first batch got over done!
You will need:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
