Chocolate Crunch Biscuits
« on: November 03, 2012, 04:09:10 am »
These are a pretty piped biscuit with a soft texture. This recipe makes 4-5 dozen small biscuits that you can leave plain, or decorate with 100s and 1000s or chocolate chips or nuts. I even topped some of them with mini marshmallows about 5 minutes before they had finished cooking (if you add them before baking, they tend to get too brown).

Ingredients:
250g butter, softened
150g sugar
25g cornflour
30g cocoa
250g plain flour
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon of vanilla ess

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180C and line your baking trays with baking paper
2. Place butter and sugar into bowl and cream on speed 3 or 4 for about 3 minutes
3. Add egg yolk and vanilla and mix on speed 5 for 5 seconds
4. Add cornflour, cocoa and flour and mix on speed 3 until just combined.
5. Place mixture into a piping bag fitted with a 1 cm star nozzle, and pipe rosettes onto trays, leaving room for spreading
6. Top with a choc chip, or sprinkle with nuts or 100s and 1000s, or leave plain
7. Bake for 20-25 minutes and leave on tray for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack.

Obbie - made vanilla instead of adding chocolate. Some piped, the rest rolled into balls. Yum.

Makes a nice fancy little biscuit Sue, would they be the size of a 50 cent coin or bigger?

My mouth is watering.  :)
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
