First things first: preheat the oven to 180°C / 370°F / gas 5. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
Cream the butter / oil and sugar. When it’s totally combined, crack in the egg, pour in the vanilla, then sift in the spices and flour.
Roll the dough into walnut-sized balls and place on your baking tray. Bake in the oven for 8-10 mins then leave to cool for a few minutes.
Melt the chocolate and drizzle over your cookies, then DIG IN!
