For the cookies

  • 100 g light brown sugar
  • 125 g margarine
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 200 g plain flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

For the drizzle

  • 100 g icing sugar
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • 4 tsp semi-skimmed milk


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan assisted, 200°C non fan) and line two baking trays with silicone liners or parchment paper

  2. Add the margarine and sugar to your mixer or a large bowl and beat until pale and fluffy

  3. Add the egg and vanilla extract and mix again

  4. Add in the flour and ground cinnamon and mix until just combined

  5. Spoon balls of cookie dough onto the lined tins leaving enough space for the cookies to spread slightly when baking

  6. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes until lightly golden

  7. Leave to cook for a few minutes on the trays before transferring to a wire rack and leaving to cool completely

  8. Once the cookies have cooled, make the drizzle. Add the icing sugar, milk and ground cinnamon to a bowl and stir until any lumps have gone

  9. Drizzle over the cookies either by spooning into a piping bag and cutting a small hole in the end or with a spoon for a more rustic look
