Cookies are basically biscuits, try to ensure the additions (nuts, chocolate or whatever) don't swamp the taste of the cookie. The following recipe is a good basic foundation and you can substitute whatever you want if you don't wish to use nuts.

Ingredients: Serves 5-10

150g butter
100g soft brown sugar
200g plain flour 
5ml tsp salt
50g nuts chopped almonds or walnuts

Cooking Instructions:

  1. Cream the butter and sugar together until it's light and creamy, add the flour and salt, mix well to form into a dough. You shouldn't need to use any liquid but if you do, just a teaspoonful at a time of tepid water.
  2. Place the dough onto a floured board, shape into a 10inch or 25cm roll, cut a large piece of tinfoil and sprinkle with the finely chopped nuts.
  3. Roll the dough in the nuts until you have coated all the dough well, wrap the dough in tinfoil and place in the fridge to firm up.
  4. When firm cut the dough into even pieces, place the cookies on two baking trays and cook in a preheated oven for 20 minutes at 160°C on the middle and top shelves, changing the trays after ten minutes.
