Baking trays lined with grease proof paper

Preheat the oven to 170C /gas mark 3.
Mix the butter and sugars in an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs one at a time mixing well then beat in vanilla extract.
Sift together the flour, salt, bicarbonate of soda and cinnamon in a separate bowl add the oats and mix well, if the mixture is too dry add a drop of milk.
Add the butter mixture and beat until well mixed then add the sultanas with a wooden spoon.
Arrange the cookie dough equally onto the baking trays leaving space between them to spread while baking.
Bake in the oven for 15 minutes checking often.
