make sure egg is at room temperature, add it to sugary butter mixture, then cream together gently.
in a separate bowl mix dry ingredients together

stir in gently so evenly distributed through the mix
heat oven to 350
there is no need to grease baking sheet if using non stick, these cookies don't stick using a teaspoon put even dollops on baking sheet, don't worry about shape they will melt and spread to cookie shapes during cooking, make sure there is plenty of space between each one so they don't all join up during cooking, you can do bigger spoonfuls for bigger cookies if you wish
place in center of oven for 9 - 11 minutes untill light golden color, looking slightly underdone as they do carry on cooking on sheet after removing from oven,
leave on baking sheet for 10 minutes, remove gently with metal spatula and leave to cool on wire rack until cool remembering to eat one while still warm as very scrumy warm. (if they are over done gently remove them with a metal spatula straight away and put them on wire rack to cool this will stop cooking process)
