Cooking time: 15 minutes
 
Ingredients (serves 6):

    225g butter, softened
    170g icing sugar, sifted
    1 tbsp Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract
    2 eggs
    250g self-raising flour
    ¼ tsp baking powder
    ¼ tsp cinnamon
    ¼ tsp salt

    For decoration:
    100g chocolate pieces of your choice, melted

Method:

1. Cream the butter, icing sugar and Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract until smooth.

2. Beat in the eggs, one at a time until combined, and light and fluffy. Beat in the remaining dry ingredients until just blended. Shape into a 12inch log and wrap in baking parchment.

3. Chill for 3-24 hours. Preheat oven to 350/180/gas4.

4. On a non-stick cookie baking sheet, place ¼ inch slices of the cookie dough. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on a wire rack.

5. When cool decorate with melted chocolate: take a teaspoonful of melted chocolate and drizzle over the cookies backwards and forwards in a fast zig-zagging motion to create a pattern on their surface.

6. Leave to harden.
