I make large cookies by scooping 1 heaped tablespoon of the mixture on to a baking sheet. You can do any size cookies but larger will need a minute or two more in the oven.
They need to bake for about 10 mins until golden brown.
If you want to make it a little more interesting a little ginger or mixed spice tastes great in the cookies.
