A friend called in for a cuppa yesterday, and I searched and searched for a recipe to make some biscuits to nibble on.
Boy O boy are there some delicious looking biscuit and cookie recipes out there on the internet…
It took me all day to decide.
Mine look a little different… but they tasted soooo good. Luckily I sent a few home with my friend.. or I am pretty sure I would have scoffed the lot!
- 160 gm butter, softened to room temperature
- 3/4 cup brown sugar
- 1/4 cup sugar (I used raw)
- 1 large egg, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups plain flour
- 2 teaspoon cornflour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- Pre-heat oven to 160 degrees (fan forced), 180 degrees if not fan forced. Line baking tray.
- Using blunt stirring attachment, combine butter and sugar in BIKM, speed 3, 1 min.
- Increase speed 4, 2 min, til light and creamy and a light brown colour.
- Scrape down sides as needed. Add egg and vanilla. Speed 4, 15 sec.
- Add all other ingredients (except choc chips). Mix speed 1, 35 sec. Increase to speed 2, 45 sec.
- Add chocolate chips, mix speed 1-2, 20 seconds.
- At this point I tipped mix into a bowl, gave the choc chips a good stir to combine thoroughly.
- Spoon round mixture onto lined baking tray.
- Cook for 8-10 minutes (no longer or they won’t stay soft).
- Cool on tray then remove to wire rack. Store in airtight container (if they last that long)
In the original recipe, the pictures show a flat biscuit. These ones stayed round and soft in the middle, which I liked.
I left my recipe as I made it, in which I used baking powder. I believe the original recipe uses bi-carb soda, but I liked my results so left it as is.
