Always a favourite – my seven year old made these this afternoon, with only one egg and 1oz of flour on the floor. And now they’re all gone …

125g or 4.5oz gluten free flour
0.5tsp bicarbonate of soda
50g or 2 oz soft brown sugar
50g or 2 oz vanilla sugar
75g or 3 oz soft margarine
1 egg
100g or 4oz chocolate chips


Preheat the oven to 180C/350F. Mix all the ingredients together except the chocolate chips, and once the ingredients have come together into a dough, stir the chocolate chips in as well.

Put teaspoons-ful onto greased baking sheets, well spaced out, and cook for about 8 minutes until golden brown.

Allow to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheet before lifting off onto a wire tray to cool completely.
