If you enjoyed making your cookie dough with us then here is the recipe!  Don't forget, it will keep for 3 days in the fridge for you to nibble on, or you can bring a tub of vanilla icecream to room temperature and pull off small balls of dough before stirring and refreezing for cookie dough icecream or if you want to make them into cookies simply squash the dough down into a circle about 1cm thick and bake for 8-10 minutes at 170 degrees.  Enjoy!


Ingredients :

1 tbsp butter

1 tsp soft brown sugar

2 tsp caster sugar
