Chocolate Chip Biscuits

A batch of these biscuits never last long…. They are crisp, chocolatey and more-ish! The mixture makes more than a hundred small biscuits and keeps well in a glass container. Easy enough for the kids to make on a rainy day.

400g butter

500ml brown sugar

5ml vanilla essence

2,5ml salt

5x eggs

700g flour

5ml baking powder

500g chocolate chips

Pre-heat your oven to 180℃.

Line two baking sheets with baking paper.

Fit your stand mixer with its paddle attachment. 

Add the butter and sugar to the bowl of your mixer and beat well.

With the mixer running, add one egg at a time, making sure it is well incorporated into the mixture before adding the next one.

Once all the eggs are incorporated, add the vanilla essence and salt.

Measure the flour and baking powder into a separate bowl. Run the mixer on low speed and add one spoonful of the flour mixture at a time, continuing until everything is well blended.

Stir in the chocolate chips.

Scoop a heaped teaspoon of the mixture and place on the baking sheet, flatten slightly by pressing down lightly with your fingers. The biscuit dough should be about 5cm apart as they spread when baking.

Bake the biscuits for 15 minutes, remove from the oven and allow to cool in the pan for a few minutes until cool enough to handle. Cool the biscuits completely on a cooling rack or a clean tea towel. Repeat until you have used up all of the mixture.

Store your biscuits in two glass jars so that you can hide one container…. You will thank me later!
