1 free-range egg, beaten
½ tsp vanilla essence
200g/7oz plain flour, plus extra for dusting
½ tsp salt
½ tsp baking powder

3.In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder.

5.On a floured work surface, carefully roll out the dough to 1cm/½in thick. Using the cookie cutter of your choice, cut out 8–16 cookies (depending on the size of the cutter).
6.Place the cookies onto a greased baking tray (not too close together as they will spread). Place into the oven to bake for 15 minutes, or until golden-brown and cooked through.
7.Remove from the oven and leave to cool on the trays for 8–10 minutes, then transfer to a wire cooling rack to cool completely.
