I don't usually do posts on the weekend but seeing as though i haven't posted anything on my blog in a while I thought I may as well share with you the great Chocolate chip biscuit recipe I've been baking recently. All nice and crispy with fine cracks on the top the biscuits look really good. My husband says they remind him of his childhood and that makes him happy :)
CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES (CAN BE WHEAT-FREE OR REGULAR)
125grams butter (at room temparature and cubed)
1 teaspoon vanilla essence or one vanilla pod
1 and a quarter cups brown sugar
1 and three quarter cups (upto 2 and cups)Gluten-Free flour of choice (eg. rice flour, gluten free flour mix)OR (1 and a half cups regular flour)
1 teaspoon bicarb
1 teaspoon baking powder
80 grams dark chocolate or chocolate of choice
Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius
Beat butter, vanilla, brown sugar and the egg until smooth and lump free.
Add to the mix the flour, bicarb abd baking powder.
Mix until everything is well incorporated.
If using normal cake flour use the 1 and a half cups of flour but if you are using a wheat free/ gluten free flour then add more flour until the mixture is nice and kind of stiff like a workable play dough.
Chop up chocolate and mix in.
Roll into small balls and flatten gentle with your hands and place on a greased baking tray.
Allow space for spreading between the biscuits and place in the oven.
Bake in the middle shelf for 7 - 10 mon or until lightly brwoned.
take out and let them cool before taking off the baking tray and placing in jars or on a plate for tea
