Method

  1. Rub the butter into the flour to make crumbs, then stir in sugar, vanilla, yolks and chocolate chips and bring together to form a dough. Roll out on a lightly floured surface and stamp out 6cm round biscuits. Re-roll the trimmings and repeat. Arrange on parchment-lined trays and chill for 30 mins.

  2. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Bake biscuits for 10-12 mins until golden. Cool. Spread each with white chocolate and leave to set. Decorate, or write on buyer’s name with red icing on the spot, if you like.

Easy basic recipe. I added the zest of a lemon and its juice to the mixture. Delicious!

very easy; quick and tasteful, will make again. I skipped the decoration and used a flower shaped cutter. Instead of choc chips i used a 70% chocholate bar cut in pieces using a knife. I think this works better as it makes the choc flakes smaller. A keeper.

I used a heart shaped cookie cutter to make these as a valentines treat for work and they went down a storm! Had to add in an extra yolk to bind the mixture as I found it quite dry and crumbly but the end result was delicious - will definitely be making these again!

I was surprised by how good they tasted! And so easy to bake! I froze 3/4 of the batch for later, hopefully they won't have lost the flavour!!

Very disappointed with this recipe. The Dough came out really wet and I had to put a lot of flour on to be able to roll them out. They're more like chocolate chip rock cakes than shortbread. I also found they lacked any real flavour. Won't be making these again!

These were lovely, I iced with a little water icing and instead of cutting them out rolled a big sausage and sliced it to make rounds which saved time.

Made these with my young children and they were very easy. I did not bother with the icing, just made the cookies. Delicious!

A great recipe! So simple to make! I halved this recipe to make around 15 biscuits. I've made these for valentines day for my boyfriend. I used heart shaped cookie cutters and instead of chocolate chips I used 100g of cut up chunks of chocolate. I then coated half the heart shaped cookie in milk chocolate. Wrapped up in some cute packaging these will be such a cute home made gift.

Anyone know how long I could keep them in the fridge for? Or could they go in the freezer?
