  • 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 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.

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.
