Chocolate Chunk Biscuits

I found this recipe here and just added chocolate chunks. It's a really plain biscuit so it's a good starting point for biscuit experiments. Just add whatever you like, nuts, dried fruit, smarties, colourings.

I wasn't actually sure if I liked this recipe after the first biscuit I ate but then I tried another one (just to make sure) and after that there was no stopping me. I took more than half the batch to the office the next day to avoid over-dosing and it's pretty safe to say that these biscuits are a win.

I later realised that they taste very similar to the biscuits my gran used to make when I was a child, minus the chocolate though. It made me feel very nostalgic. That's probably why I ate so many of them. Not because I'm a pig. Definitely not.

125g Butter
2 cups Flour
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
1 tblsp Milk
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence
1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 Egg
Half a slab of whatever chocolate you like

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius

Cream butter and caster sugar together

Add egg and vanilla and mix well

Add sifted flour, baking powder and milk and mix carefully until just incorporated.

Break up chocolate (I used swiss milk chocolate with hazelnuts) and mix in.

Roll the mixture into balls about the size of a large marble and place the balls on a greased/lined baking tray, flatten the balls with your thumb or with the back of a fork.

Bake for about 25 minutes or until biscuits are golden brown.
