Refrigerator Cookies
Yield: about 30

4oz/125g butter
scant cup caster sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla and mix well. Sift
together flour, baking powder, salt and added dry ingredients (if
using) and mix in. (If dough is too dry to come together, add milk
about 1 dessertspoon at a time until dough is just damp enough to
form a ball.) Chill dough for 30 minutes. Form into 2 rolls about
3cm (1 1/2") in diameter. Wrap in plastic wrap or aluminium foil
and store in the fridge or freezer until required.

To use: Unwrap dough and cut off slices 1cm (1/2") thick as
required. (Remaining dough can be re-wrapped and put back in
storage.) Place on an ungreased baking sheet and bake at 350F/180C
for 10-15 mins. Cool on wire racks.


Coconut: Add 1 cup of dessicated shredded unsweetened coconut with
the flour.

Choc chip (perfect for those frozen cookie dough moments): Add
1/2 cup chocolate chips with the flour.

Flavoured: Omit vanilla. Add 1 teaspoon of your favourite flavouring
essence (eg orange, lemon, almond) and appropriate food colouring
if desired.

Chocolate: Omit 2 Tablespoons flour. Add 2 1/2 Tablespoons cocoa
with the remaining flour.

Spice (or cinnamon): Add 2 1/2 teaspoons mixed spice (or cinnamon)
with the flour.

Coffee: Add 5 teaspoons instant coffee with the flour.

Nut: Add 1/2 cup chopped nuts with the flour.

Note: these can be combined, eg coffee-cinnamon, choc-choc-chip,
