- 500g plain flour

Some health and safety points to be aware of before you begin:
- Make sure you have an adult with you to help when working with a hot oven and stove/hob.
- Always use oven gloves when putting your baking tray in, and taking it out of the hot oven.
- Take care when handling sharp knives and kitchen utensils, make sure you have an adult close by to supervise and help you. - As Nick mentioned - cookies straight out of the oven are extremely hot! Make sure you give them time to cool down before handling and eating them.
