Cob Nut Cookies
4oz butter or margarine
4oz caster sugar
1 egg, beaten
1 tbsp milk
a few drops of vanilla extract
2oz cob nuts, chopped and toasted (if you wish)
6oz plain flour
1tsp baking powder
a few grains of salt
Pre-heat oven to 190 Celsius /375 F/ mark 5
Grease a baking sheet. Cream the butter and sugar together. Beat in the egg, milk and vanilla extract. Stir in the nuts. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together and add to the mixture. Mix well.
Divide mixture into 12 pieces. Roll into balls and press down lightly onto baking sheet. I made mine in two batches of 6.
Bake for about 12 minutes until still pale in the middle but golden around the edges. Cool on a wire rack.
*Thank you for all the lovely comments about the craft fair. The particular venue I was at doesn't have any more vacant stalls this year. I feel that now I have 'wanting to do a craft fair' out of my system, I may want to move onto another project (fickle that I am!) My watercolour paints are calling.
