Method

  1. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Line 2-3 baking sheets with baking parchment. Put the butter and sugar in a food processor and whizz until light and fluffy. Add the egg and vanilla, and mix well. Sift together the flour and custard powder, then tip into the bowl and pulse to mix into a dough. Scrape out the food processor and work the chocolate in by hand.
  2. Roll the dough into balls a little smaller than a walnut, then place on the baking sheets, a little apart to allow for spreading. Press each biscuit down lightly with your fingers.
  3. Bake for 12-15 mins until lightly golden. Remove and cool on a wire rack.

I agree with others, these definitely taste better a few days later. Very yummy, my hand keeps finding its way to the biscuit tin!

I stuck completely to the recipe and it is brilliant! Very easy. Makes loads but they disappear quickly!

i'm a fussy cook/baker and my family are fussy eaters, i wouldnt give this full marks if it truly didnt live up to it! it does!!!! we've made this about 27 times! is a regular and a favourite. they are the absolute best on day 2 and 3. if you're making something to impress people over coffee etc then do these the day before. they look plain and boring maybe but the taste is utterly gorgeous!!!! i've tried custard powder in recipes before and the results have not been very good. this is wonderful though. superbly easy, lob the lot in food processor and then make small balls and squidge flattish onto parchment. simples! ;-) i dont do solely white chocolate chips, i do half those and half either milk choc chips or chocolate coated caramel buttons. they come out floppy from the oven so use a wide palette knife to put on cooling rack, then they firm up when cool of course. also gorgeous served pushed into the side of a few scoops of decent icecream in a small bowl. ;-)

Scrummy. Could do with more custardiness, and more chocolate, though. Will make these again, but will double those ingredients.

First batch came out looking exactly like the picture, second and third batches expanded on the tray ridiculously but were all absolutely delicious.

I added frozen raspberries to my mix and they made a nice addition to the biscuit and complemented the sweetness of the chocolate nicely.

Don't make these unless you have willpower just cannot leave them alone so scrummy. I did cut down on sugar to 130grams and next time I make them may go down to 100 as still sweet and if I save some calories I won't feel so guilty about the amount I eat.

I loved these - great flavour, and the smell when they were in the oven was amazing! It took me about an hour but I haven't baked for a while and have never used a food processor before, although in hindsight I wish I'd had a bigger bowl, as there seemed to be slightly too much for it to cope with. My mixture was quite sticky (and I forgot how big walnuts are meant to be), which made me panic a bit, but I ended up with 29 crispy, golden-brown cookies, so I'm happy.

I have made them twice in the last week and everyone absolutely loves them I always put less sugar in all my baking as they always come out too sweet and I also made them with milk chocolate and also yummy !!!

Just baked these for a group I'll be going to tonight. After reading the comments saying they were very sweet I decided to reduce the sugar content. However, I misread the recipe! So instead of reading 175g, I saw 75g. And I reduced it to 50g! And guess what - they are scrummy! And still rather sweet, actually! I did up the custard powder a bit as I had already cleaned my weighing bowl, so I added about 112g (1.5x75g sachet). But they are delicious, and still really rather sweet!

Delicious. So easy for the kids to help make and really tasty. Made with less sugar and more custard powder and added milk chocolate drops rather than the white. Will be making these again :)

My daughter enjoyed making these. We used fudge pieces as we didn't have white chocolate.
They are particularly good when warm. Very sweet!

Nice little biscuits - making the dough into smaller than walnut sized balls I made over 50! They didn't spread out much whilst baking so should be flattened before.

Deeeelicous. Don't overbake, they firm up. Bit more custard powder perhaps. Flakes almonds.
