Winter wonder baking

Chocolate sprinkle cookies and girl talk; the ideal recipe for a nice Saturday (after)noon.
Are you licking your lips already? Let’s make some yourself. Here's the ideal cookie recipe (from the book Verslaafd aan Chocolade - in English Addicted to Chocolate).

All you need (for about 24 cookies)
120 g butter
baking paper
100 g brown sugar
1 egg
220 g self-raising flour
a pinch of salt
125 g chocolate (sprinkles or chopped; dark, milk or white; it’s all possible)
(optional: 50 g nuts, cut into pieces)

How you m/bake it
preheat oven (110°C)
beat the butter and sugar
add the egg
sift the flour and salt onto the pastry
keep on mixing until you get a “sticky” dough
add the chocolate (and nuts)

Do you want round cookies? Drop little “piles” of dough onto a baking plate*. (Keep enough space between the cookies-to-be because the dough will “spread” in the oven.)
Do you want (like I did) use pastry cutters to get (and eat) nicely shaped cookies? Let the dough rest in the fridge for a few hours. Roll out the dough, cut out the cookies and arrange them on a baking plate (*covered with baking paper or butter).
Have them baked for about 15 minutes.

P.S. I’d say: let me know how you liked it.
