Preheat the oven to 300°F (150°C)

Stage 2 - 4 min.

Do the same with 40 g pecan nuts and 40 g flaked almonds.

Stage 3 - 15 min.

Toast in the oven for 15 minutes.

Leave to cool (this will be quicker if you slip the baking sheet out from underneath, but keep it handy as you'll need it for stage 12).

Turn the oven up to 370°F (190°C).

Stage 4 - 3 min.

Set aside.

Stage 5 - 2 min.

Stage 6 - 4 min.

Stage 7 - 2 min.

Stage 8 - 5 min.

Stage 9 - 4 min.

Stage 10 - 8 min.

Take the dough out of the bowl and divide into approx. 40 g (one and a half ounce) pieces.

Stage 11 - 5 min.

Roll the pieces of dough betwen your hands into nice round balls.

Note: this is the part children enjoy best. If they are helping you make these, you may well hear something like, "This is cool, just like playdough!"

Stage 12 - 5 min.

Reuse the paper and baking sheets from stage 3. Squash out the balls of dough on the cooking parchment with the palm of your hand into flat cookies, slightly thicker in the centre.

Bake for about 20 minutes.

Stage 13 - 20 min.

Do watch towards the end of cooking. It is important not to overcook these cookies.

Ideally, they should be crisp and golden brown around the edge, but still soft in the centre.

Stage 14 - 30 min.

Take off the paper and leave to cool on a wire rack.

Your cookies are ready. The only difficulty now is resisting the temptation to eat them all right away!

Remarks

Once the basic dough is made at stage 9, you can let your imagination guide you and (for example) use walnuts instead of almonds, muesli instead of oats, raisins or dried apricots instead of chocolate. Everything is possible (or nearly).

You can use bicarbonate of soda instead of the baking powder.

Before baking you can glaze the raw cookies at stage 12, but this is not essential.
