These little beauties have to be our all time favourite ‘go-to’ recipe for a quick, easy and above all tasty treat. These are made with white chocolate but any chocolate would work – having tried them with white, milk and plain chocolate (purely for research, obviously), we think the white chocolate version is the best:
I used to run my own business a few years ago, when my children were really little. I would cook, freeze and deliver food for babies and young children. These cookies were on my menu in the ‘treats’ section. I used to find that many of my customers would order the healthier, more wholesome meals for their babies and toddlers whilst ordering a couple of bags of these cookies for them and their partners to tuck in to once the babes were asleep!
Here’s my version of the recipe:
250g butter, softened
250g soft brown sugar
2 eggs, beaten
400g self-raising flour
250g chocolate, chopped
Line several baking trays with baking parchment, pre-heat the oven to 160*C.
Then, in a large bowl cream together the butter and sugar until the mixture is pale and fluffy.
Slowly add the beaten egg, beating well after each addition.
Sieve the flour into the mixture and fold in.
Stir in the chopped chocolate.
Place heaped teaspoons of the mixture onto the baking trays. Make sure the biscuits are spaced well apart as they will spread when cooking.
Bake in the pre-heated oven for about 10 minutes or until the edges have just begun to turn golden brown.
Leave to cool on a wire try, or simply tuck in to a couple if you can’t wait that long!
