Preheat the oven to 180°C / gas mark 4.
Grease a baking sheet with butter or cake release, or cover with greaseproof paper.
Ensure the butter has been softened, or use soft margarine.
Slap the butter into a bowl, and whack in the sugar. Mix well till creamy.
Sift in the flour or just chuck in if you prefer, it doesn't hurt and can be quite fun too!! (If not a bit messy...)
Dollop them onto the prepared baking sheet, using just under a golf ball size each time.
Squash them using whatever you want, making nice pretty patterns! (Though don't expect them to be there when they've finished baking!)
Bake for about 10-15 minutes, or until golden-brown.
Leave for a few minutes and then move to a wire rack to cool.
Eat or cry as you realised what you've created will lead to an inevitable second batch.
Goes well with coffee, very well...
Substitute some of the flour for cocoa powder for a chocolatey alternative!
