Recipe | Yummy Spiced Cookies

Let’s be honest, whats NOT to love about a tower of cookies??

I admit, I almost didn’t want to share this recipe, in the hope that should their be a cookie contest with my friends – I would win hahaha! It seemed a little selfish though, so here we are!

❤ If you take out the mixed spiced, this is a really good basic recipe, which you can easily adapt with whatever you’d like 🙂


  • 125g butter, softened
  • 125g Dark brown soft sugar
  • 125g Caster sugar
  • 1 Egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 225g Self-raising flour

Note: If you only have plain flour, use 225g, with 2 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt 

  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 1 Heeped tsp mixed spice


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, gas mark 4 and line a baking tray with grease proof paper.
  2. In a good sized mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugars, and then combine the egg and vanilla.
  3. Sift in the flour, mixed spice and salt.
  4. Mix together until well combined, it will be on the wetter side so don’t add any extra flour. You’ll find it should easily come together though, with the use of a wooden spoon!
  5. Roll into walnut size balls, and transfer to your baking tray.
  6. Using the heel of your hand, flatten each ball, until around a 1cm thick.
  7. Using a fork go over each cookie, making a criss cross
  8. Bake for 10-12 minutes until just golden round the edges.
  9. Take out of the oven and leave to harden for a minute before transferring to a wire cooling rack. NOM! – Enjoy!
