What are cookies?
Cookies are tiny little data files that a website goes and hides on your computer, tablet or mobile phone. Cookies allow a website to remember your actions when you navigate through it, just in case you forgot.
There are 2 types of cookies:
- Session cookies: These are deleted automatically, never to be seen again, as soon as you leave our website.
- Persistent cookies: They are stubborn little fellas that remain on your device longer or until you delete them yourselves. If you visit our website again and you haven’t deleted them, we automatically recognise that you have visited us before, what you looked for and what settings you chose, so that you don’t have to repeat the same steps (see how we make it easier for you?).

1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 3/4 cups self-raising flour

In a mixing bowl, cream the butter, sugar and vanilla.
Add the egg and then the flour and salt and combine.
