Carob cookies

My son's friend said "Your mother should sell these. People would buy them."

125 gm butter or failsafe margarine
1 and 1/4 cups brown sugar, firmly packed
1 egg
1 and 1/3 cup plain flour
1 tsp soda bicarbonate
1 tbsp carob powder

Preheat oven to 180°C. Cream butter, sugar and egg in a mixer until smooth. Stir in sifted dry ingredients. Place balls of mixture 5 cms apart on baking paper lined baking trays. Bake 10-12 minutes. Allow to cool on tray before transferring to wire rack. These freeze well.
