Winter Left-Overs Comfort Food Recipe 2: Chocolate-Chip Biscuits

May 13, 2014

So it is not exactly healthy…but it is comfort food! We had left over flour and chocolate-chips which we wanted to use but you could chop up a slab of chocolate instead (for the chocolate part). Most of the other ingredients, you would generally have in your kitchen.

Ingredients

95ml butter (softened)
80ml brown sugar
1 tsp  vanilla essence
1 egg
1 cup cake flour
½ tsp baking soda (bicarb)
Pinch of salt
1 x 100g package chocolate chips

Directions

  1. Heat oven to 180ºC.
  2. Mix butter, sugar, vanilla essence and egg in large bowl using spoon.
  3. Stir in flour, baking soda (bicarb) and salt.
  4. Stir in chocolate chips.
  5. Roll into balls and flatten, place them about 3cm apart on ungreased baking tray.
  6. Bake for about 15 minutes or until light brown.
  7. Cool slightly.
  8. Move from baking tray to wire rack
  9. Cool further.

Of course, we have family members with both egg and wheat allergies so we made an alternative as well…
