  • ½ tsp vanilla extract
  • 225g self-raising flour
  • 85g custard powder
  • 85g white chocolate, chopped into small chunks

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've made these probably nigh on over a hundred times for many yrs. know how to make them off by heart now. they're lush. my family love them. they work every time and are a true delight and we're fussy! ;-) sometimes i swap the white choc chips for fudge chips and thats a nice alternative too. but one thing i must add to this comment is i ALWAYS use the 100g pack of chips, never a mere 50g. when i tried that first time it was sparse. :-(

Delicious and easy. I made 29 from this mixture and they are a decent size. I didn't want to buy a whole tin of custard powder (my family love ready made custard so I wouldn't use the rest of the tin) so I bought a packet of instant custard and substituted that mixed with the flour, this worked well. I will definitely make these again.

Also, make sure you leave enough space between the biscuits, as they will spread out during cooking :-)

Made them for a ladies afternoon tea I hosted. Made them again for a charity cake sale this morning :-) They get better each time

these biscuits are soo yummy. I will bake them 4th time today, everyone I gave them is asking for recipe and cant stop complementing on them. They are also easy to make and kids love to help. Super cookies :) Im using usually about 130g sugar, otherwise they are a bit too sweet.

These are simple, easy and oh so delicious. Our kids love them and we've made them for family celebrations and they are very popular. Thanks for a wonderful recipe.

I put a second egg in because the dough was too dry. Added less sugar 150g, which was plenty. I added walnuts and milk choc pieces, The biscuits took a little longer to dry out/cook. Chilled the mix before blobbing the biscuits out to cook because it is easier to handle that way. They are delicious! Will make them again.

baked these one friday after work as a treat, they where fantastic. Very easy and quick to whip up in a food processor.
I added about 15g more white chocolate chips only becuase i had a bag of 100g in the cupboard, worked very well.
Be carefull with timing as these can burn very qucikly. make sure when they come out they have a slight bounce as they harden up when cooling.
Family loved them! will make again very soon.

Easy and quick. Tastes very sweet (obv!) and you can hardly taste the choc. I might try it next time with some dried fruit instead of the choc.

i double the choc chips every time. makes them utterly lush. i always use those packs of 100g of white choc chips from morrisons. mega cheap. x

Made these for the first time to test my new mixer, gorgeous! Couldn't find my vanilla bottle but still taste lovely. 5 days on and only a couple left! Nom nom!

Delicious! Tip: cut back the sugar, increase the white choc chunks, and add equal amount of cranberries. Amazing!

Awesome and quick recipe. I opted to make massive cookies instead of 25 small ones.

These were nice biscuits and very quick and simple to make. Very tasty too but I'm not convinced by the texture. They didn't spread at all so the first batch were much too thick. I would make these again (my husband loved them!) and will make them smaller and flatten them out more next time.

i've made them over a hundred times now over the yrs. we love them. i always do dough balls of about 1'' in size. hope that helps, they work perfectly this way. x

I like thinner, crispy biscuits. A good trick is to flatten them after they've gone into the oven. Just keep an eye on them and when you see them starting to get really puffy (maybe 5-6 minutes) open the oven and gently press each one down using a fish slice or a metal spatula.

These came out perfectly, lovely texture and flavour. I drizzled some melted white chocolate over the top too. I was just slightly disappointed that you couldn't really taste the custard.

I used white 2 x 100grs of white chocolate chips, and it gave this nice gooey texture!! You can also make giant biscuits, which can be a nice dessert with an ice cream scoop :-)
