Ingredients (makes 15 cookies)
- 455g Plain flour
- 1 level tsp Baking powder
- 4oz Butter
- 4oz sugar
- 1 tsp Cinnamon

- 1 Egg, lightly beaten
- 15 Freckle lollies

- Sift the flour, cinnamon, baking powder and salt together.
- In a separate bowl, cream the butter and sugar then add vanilla and most of the egg – gradually.
- Add the flour mixture and mix to a stiff consistency.
- Add the remainder of the egg (some milk may be needed if the mix is too dry) and mix to combine.
- Turn onto a floured board and knead lightly. Roll out and cut flower shapes ( I used a cutter but you can do it free hand or just make circle shaped flowers- they taste just as good!) Place a freckle into the center of each one, and press to gently stick
