1tblsp Plain flour sifted
6oz Caster sugar
1 egg beaten
Line several baking sheets with baking paper.
Heat oven to Gas mark 3.
Mix oats, flour and sugar together.
Melt the butter and while hot pour it over the dry ingredients.
Stir well until mixed.
Make a well in the centre.
Add the beaten egg and vanilla essence.
Drop teaspoons of mix on to the baking sheets well spaced out.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes (my oven not very good so I did mine for 20 mins - they need to be turning golden at the edges)
