• 180g unsalted butter, softened
  • 220g (1 cup) caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 75g (1/2 cup) self-raising flour
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • Chocolate freckles, to decorate
  • Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with non-stick baking paper.
  • Place the butter and sugar into the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until pale and creamy. Add the egg and beat well.
  • Stir in the flours and mix to form a dough. Roll 2 tablespoons of dough into a ball and flatten onto the baking tray. Press your thumb into the centre of the dough to make a hole (do not go all the way through). Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Press a chocolate freckle into each hole and bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Set aside on wire racks to cool.
