In a bowl thoroughly mix 4oz of self raising flour with 1oz cocoa and a pinch of fine sea salt.

In a large bowl beat together 4oz softened, unsalted butter with 2 oz of caster sugar (I used vanilla sugar). Beat well until light and fluffy.

Sift the flour and cocoa mixture over the butter and mix until just combined.

Roll into walnut sized balls and place 4″ apart on lightly greased baking trays. Gently flatten a little and bake for 8-10 minutes at 180 c.

Makes 18-20 cookies.
