Ingredients - makes aroud 40 cookies depending on size of cutter used.
225g plain flour
2 tsps baking powder
pinch of salt
1/2 tbsp allspice
100g white sugar
1/2 cup chocolate chips
Place flour, baking powder and salt into a large mixing bowl.
Rub in the butter until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs.
Stir in the sugar, allspice and chocolate chips.
Mix in the beaten egg and then use your hands to bring the mixture together.
Turn out onto a floured surface and knead gently until the mixture is smooth.
Put in a bag and chill in the fridge for around 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 180c and line a couple of baking trays with greaseproof paper.
Roll out the dough as thinly as you can before it starts to fall apart.
Cut out your cookies and place on the baking trays, leaving a bit of a gap between the cookies to allow for expansion during cooking.
Place the trays in the oven for around 15 minutes until the cookies just start to turn a golden brown around the edges.
Carefully transfer to wire cooling racks and allow to cool completely.
