So, yesterday I've been craving for homemade biscuits. I've to say I rarely bake biscuits, only when the Eid season came. Not to mention that I'm no pro at it. But after coming across various images of various, delicious, traditional biscuits on the web, I decided to roll my sleeve up and roll some cookie dough!
The result was tremendous. Just look at the picture above, looks good ain't? Not bad for a second timers.
What you need:
- 500g Caster Sugar or Icing Sugar
- 500g Butter (I used Clover's)
- 4 Eggs
- 100g Chocolate Powder (I used Bournville's)
- 900g Self Raising Flour
- Chocolate Hundreds & Thousands
- Cooking Chocolate
- Beat the sugar and butter until fluffy and soft.
- Add the eggs one by one and repeat step 1 until well mixed.
- Add chocolate powder and mix.
- Finally, add the flour gradually.
- Shape the mixture into a dough.
- Roll out onto a surface and used a cookies cutter to make into a shape (optional). I cut the dough into a more or less the same rectangle size using a plastic knife.
- Set your oven on 180 degrees and bake the biscuits for 30 minutes.
- After letting the biscuits to cool down, melt the cooking chocolate using double boiling method.
- Next, dip the top bit of the biscuit into the melted chocolate and sprinkle some hundreds & thousands.
