    Serves: 18 

    • 3 tablespoons caster sugar
    • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
    • 220g dark brown soft sugar
    • 100g caster sugar
    • 225g unsalted butter, softened
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
    • 315g plain flour
    • 3/4 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt

    Prep:25min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Preheat oven to 150 C / Gas 2.
    2. Combine the 3 tablespoons sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
    3. Mix together the brown and caster sugars in a large bowl with mixer on medium speed. Add butter and blend until grainy. Add eggs and vanilla extract, mixing until light and fluffy.
    4. Whisk flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt together in a separate bowl. Add to sugar mixture, mixing at low speed just long enough to combine. Overmixing makes tough cookies!
    5. Roll dough into 2.5cm balls, then roll each ball into cinnamon-sugar to coat. Place cookies on ungreased baking trays and bake for 18 to 20 minutes. Remove from trays and allow to cool on wire racks.
